Following the arrival on Jordan Henderson from Sunderland, Steven Gerrard is pleased with the signing. Whilst Liverpool were chasing after Henderson, many had been dubbing Henderson the next Steven Gerrard.

I am really not a fan of putting pressure on young players and comparing them to proven stars but Gerrard himself has come out and said that he hopes Henderson can become the next Gerrard.
If Henderson can step in and fill Gerrard’s boots as Gerrard starts to age and slow down, then we have signed ourselves a gem.

“It’s a really positive signing,” Gerrard told the Daily Express. “Let’s hope he is the next Steven Gerrard.

“Liverpool needs a new Steven Gerrard and it will need a new Jamie Carragher. That’s what good football clubs do – they replace their best players.

“I saw Jordan at first hand for two or three days with England and he is a good player with energy.”
