Despite an unforgettable year which has seen him captain his country and move to one of football's most famous clubs, Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson knows he is not the finished article.

Since moving to Anfield in the summer, the 21-year-old has not only impressed with his performances on the pitch, but Reds coaches have also admired his application and attitude off it as well.

"I want to become a much better player, improve every day, keep working hard and learn from the players around me," Henderson told "Then hopefully become a very successful player for Liverpool and also my country.

"I'm very appreciative of where I am today, but I still want more, I still want to go forward. There are a lot more things I want to achieve.


"I don't get carried away with it but also I want to strive for more and keep that hunger going."

Henderson has also revealed how he stays late after training in a bid to improve his goalscoring form, and says he wants to start climbing the goalscoring charts.

With one goal from eight Liverpool appearances so far, after finding the net against Bolton, he has also scored twice for England U21s this term, but is far from content with those statistics.

"I like to stay after training and do some finishing and other things that I think I need to work on," he added. "Finishing and goalscoring is a big part of football so I've been trying to work on that for quite a lot of months now.

"I've scored a couple this season and I would like a lot more. [But] I can't get too focused on that, I need to concentrate on other parts of my game that I need to improve on, but goalscoring and getting in certain positions is definitely one thing I need to get better at."
