The Football Writers’ Association, FWA, has named Liverpool’s player, Jordan Henderson as the Footballer of the Year for 2019/2020 season.
The 30-year-old clinch the title with a stiff opposition from Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford.
He also saw opposition from team-mates, Virgil Van Dijk and Sadio Mane.
In a statement, Henderson said:
I’d like to say how appreciative I am of the support of those who voted for me and the Football Writers’ Association in general.
You only have to look at the past winners of it, a number of whom I’ve been blessed to play with here at Liverpool, like Stevie (Gerrard), Luis (Suarez) and Mo (Salah) to know how prestigious it is.
But as grateful as I am I don’t feel like I can accept this on my own.
I don’t feel like anything I’ve achieved this season or in fact during my whole career has been done on my own.
I owe a lot to so many different people – but none more so than my current teammates – who have just been incredible and deserve this every bit as much as I do.
We’ve only achieved what we’ve achieved because every single member of our squad has been brilliant.
And not just in matches. Not just in producing the moments that make the headlines and the back pages but every day in training.
