Jordan Henderson: Liverpool captain named FWA Footballer of the Year


Jordan Henderson has been crowned Football Writers' Association (FWA) Footballer of the Year for the 2019/20 season.
The Liverpool captain saw off stiff competition from Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne and Manchester United's Marcus Rashford, as well as team-mates Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane, to claim the honour.
Liverpool's dominance in the league was reflected in the voting as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alisson Becker also received votes, but it was Henderson - with more than a quarter of the votes - who was the clear winner.
"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.
