Rodgers praise for Henderson

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers praised match-winner Jordan Henderson for the goal against Udinese which put them through to the last 32 of the Europa League but accepted it was by the finest of margins.

Henderson's first European goal put the Reds top of Group A but Udinese, who had Giovanni Pasquale sent off 10 minutes from the end, almost snatched the draw which would have sent Liverpool crashing out with the last kick of the game when captain Antonio di Natale blasted over.

Young Boys' victory over Anzhi meant Liverpool had to win to progress and Henderson's first-half strike meant they finished group winners. Rodgers of the midfielder: "He is a great lad and works hard and has come in over the last month and made a good contribution to the team."
