Jordan Henderson surprised by Ferguson criticism

Published Add your comment

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has revealed Sir Alex Ferguson's recent criticism in the legendary manager's new autobiography has not affected his mindset, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Ferguson blasted the 23-year-old's running style and said that it will cause him fitness problems during the latter stages of his career.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was not happy with Ferguson's comments and lambasted the Scotsman for his public outburst.

Henderson, on the other hand, is keen to move on from the incident.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Henderson said: “I didn’t expect it.

“I have just tried to focus on my game and not really thought about it.

“I have a lot of respect for him, he’s an unbelievable figure in football, but hopefully he isn’t right and I won’t have too many problems later in my career.

“It was quite unusual but I haven’t read the whole thing. I know he’s spoken about my running technique and I’ll have to read it properly at some point. It doesn’t bother me too much.”

Henderson has been in outstanding form for Liverpool this season, starting all nine of his side's Premier League games thus far.

Liverpool are currently third in the league, having won six of their opening nine matches.

Rodgers' side face Premier League leaders Arsenal on Saturday - with only two points separating the two sides going into the game at the Emirates Stadium.
