I HAVE to applaud Jordan Henderson for turning his Liverpool career around.

I’ve been among his critics as when we bought him I expected a lot more. But now he’s coming to the party.

He played really well at Arsenal and I thought Sunday was his best display for the club. He’s working really hard and justifying his place ahead of Joe Allen.

Being crowned England Under-21 player of the year will only enhance his confidence and I’m delighted for him.
