Jordan Henderson: The Autobiography: The must-read autobiography from Liverpool’s beloved captain
About this deal
This is where the priests come in. Henderson is the second-oldest member of the squad after Kyle Walker, the second-most capped after Sterling. He is the only one to have won both the Premier League and Champions League. And so to see him sit humbly and uncomplainingly on the bench, behind two midfielders from West Ham and Leeds, offers the sort of immensely powerful motif that no other member of Southgate’s party – least of all Southgate himself – could provide. A brilliantly told story with a uniquely vivid sense of what it is like on the pitch in matches of extreme importance . . .
