Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted that it was an easy decision for him to keep Jordan Henderson on as the club's captain.
As reported by the Liverpool Echo, Klopp, who has enjoyed a fine start to life on Merseyside, has revealed that he's hoping to see the dynamic midfielder return to the pitch in the coming weeks.
Henderson, of course, has been out of action for some time after breaking his foot in training, but Klopp has a great deal of faith in his skipper, claiming that he's an 'absolute leader'.

When asked whether Henderson would stay on as captain, Klopp stated: “There was no second of doubt about this decision. I didn’t ask because it was logical for me, we never had to think about whether Henderson was the right captain.
“I’ve met him, he’s an absolute leader and he’s in a good way at this moment, and we all hope he’s back in a few weeks.
“I do not know what will happen in the next two weeks, it’s very important and we’re waiting for this. Hendo stays captain.”
Ultimately, Klopp has already changed the dynamic at Anfield, but he's right to keep Henderson on as his captain.
Of course, it was Brendan Rodgers who handed the former Sunderland man the role, but there's no reason why he won't be able to go from strength-to-strength under the new regime.
Henderson has a huge part to play for the club throughout the course of the season, so the Reds faithful will be hoping to see their leader return to the pitch sooner rather than later.
