The perfect player?

Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson builds his ideal Liverpool team-mate based on some key attributes

First handed the armband in 2015, Jordan Henderson has gone on to become the first Liverpool captain to lift six different trophies – including the Champions League, which he could be holding aloft again on Saturday. After commandeering his players to so many triumphs, it is fair to say that he has the measure of what they each excel at. So here he makes a call on the top-ranking team-mate in a series of categories covering attributes on and off the pitch, in order to build one model Liverpool player.

Skills

I’d probably go with Luis Díaz. He’s a very good dribbler: he’s very good on the ball, can go either way and can use either foot.


Strength

Virgil van Dijk. You’ve got to put him in because he’s probably the strongest man in the world. Nothing gets past him.


Finishing

That’s a tough one. For technical finishing I like Divock Origi; his finishing in training and in games, in the big moments, is very good. If we’re going to go on goals then obviously we’ve got to go with Mo Salah.


Vision

Thiago. Some of the passes he sees… he’s got very good vision. Really consistent – some of his passing this season has been unbelievable.


Fan rapport

I’d either go Robbo [Andrew Robertson] or Trent [Alexander-Arnold]. Obviously Trent’s from Liverpool, so he’s got a close connection with the fans anyway. And Robbo likes running to the fans and getting involved with them, so a mixture of both.


Intellect

I’ll go with Milly [James Milner], who is probably the smartest. We play Tenable quite a lot and he knows the majority of stuff.


Banter

Robbo. He is always up to something and messing around. He’s great in the dressing room with the lads, so I’ll go with him.
