Henderson delighted with progress

Last Updated: Fri, 18 Oct 2013 08:15

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson is delighted to have played his way into Brendan Rodgers' thoughts after looking likely to leave.

The 22-year-old has been in impressive form this season for the Reds and he has not given up hope of making it into Roy Hodgson's squad, despite missing out on selection in the recent World Cup qualifiers.

Things had looked very different a year or so ago when he was offered as a make-weight for the Clint Dempsey deal, which failed, but hard work has now won his manager over.

"There were a few areas that the manager and I spoke about to improve on," he said.

"I went away and did what he said and I'll carry on doing so.

"I'll keep working on my game. I want to improve whatever position I'm playing and I want to do the best.

"The manager has put a lot of faith in me. It gives me confidence.

"He's improved my game since he came to Liverpool which I am very thankful for.

"Hopefully I can keep repaying him, keep working hard on the training pitch and improving and learning off other players."
