Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is set for up to two months on the sidelines after breaking his foot in training on Friday, just days after undergoing a successful operation on his heel in New York.

It will extend the England international’s time out of the first team, having only been handed the skipper’s armband following Steven Gerrard’s move to LA Galaxy this summer.

The midfielder limped off during his side’s opening home fixture against Bournemouth back in August, and hasn’t made an appearance since.

It was an issue with his left heel that forced him off during that Monday night game, but an operation across the Atlantic on Tuesday seemingly rectified the problem.

As a result, the 25-year-old was able to return to training this week but sustained a broken foot at Melwood in what has been described as a 'freak accident' rather than being on the receiving end of
a robust challenge from a teammate.

Henderson has since tweeted his dismay: “Very disappointed and frustrated with the injury setback but will work hard to be back as quickly as possible.

“Will be supporting the team in every way I can while I’m unable to play. Thanks for all your support.”

Brendan Rodgers aspired to have his skipper available for selection for this Sunday’s visit of Norwich, but those hopes have now been dashed.

If it does take Henderson two months to return to full fitness then he will miss Liverpool’s next 12 games, as well as England internationals against Estonia, Lithuania and Spain.
