Liverpool captain named FWA Footballer of the year

Published

on

Liverpool captain (Jordan Henderson) has been crowned Football Writers’ Association (FWA) Footballer of the Year for the 2019/20 season.

 

He (Henderson) saw off stiff competition from Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Man 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 alongside him, but it was Henderson – with more than a quarter of the votes – who was the clear winner.

Reflecting on his win, 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.
