Published Add your comment

Liverpool centre-back Kolo Toure won't share his Player of the Year vote, but thinks it's between Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho.

The Ivorian has been used sparingly this season, acquiring a backup role at the Merseyside club, but is most remembered for his disastrous game against former employers Arsenal. 

"I have two players to be honest who I think will be challenging for it," Toure told the Liverpool Echo. "They are Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson. They have both been really consistent and have played really well.

Toure hails duo 

"Jordan has been really strong. He has scored some important goals and led the team really well when Steven Gerrard wasn’t in the team."

The 24-year-old may well assume the captaincy once Kop legend Steven Gerrard departs for Los Angeles. The former Sunderland player has scored six goals and set up nine this season.

The England international has featured in the most amount of games for Liverpool this term, but Toure believes Brazilian Coutinho is also in the mix.

"Philippe has been great. Last season he was fantastic, but this season he has added more goals to his game."

The 22-year-old was inducted into the PFA Team of the Year this season proving a key member of the Liverpool squad. The Brazilian has scored five assisting the same number.

Tough decision 

The 34-year-old centre-back continued: "It’s a tough decision. Who is going to win? I have my choice but I’m going to keep that under my hat. I think it’s going to be between those two players."

Liverpool flyer Raheem Sterling should also be in the mix as the 20-year-old leads the club's statistics for goals and assists.

Do you think Raheem Sterling will stay at Liverpool in the summer?
