Breaking: Jordan Henderson named FWA Player of the Year
In the first award of awards season, LFC's captain Jordan Henderson has been announced as the Football Writer's Association Player of the Year today.
The 30 year old has lifted the Premier League trophy just two days ago, and has now received his first senior accolade personally.
It'll hopefully be the first of many as the season comes to a close, with a handful of other domestic awards still up for grabs.
In a statement released in the last 15 minutes via Liverpoolfc.com, the skip said: “I’d like to say how appreciative I am of the support of those who voted for me and the Football Writers’ Association in general. You only have to look at the past winners of it, a number of whom I’ve been blessed to play with here at Liverpool, like Stevie [Gerrard], Luis [Suarez] and Mo [Salah] to know how prestigious it is.
“But as grateful as I am I don’t feel like I can accept this on my own. I don’t feel like anything I’ve achieved this season or in fact during my whole career has been done on my own. I owe a lot to so many different people – but none more so than my current teammates – who have just been incredible and deserve this every bit as much as I do.
“We’ve only achieved what we’ve achieved because every single member of our squad has been brilliant. And not just in matches. Not just in producing the moments that make the headlines and the back pages but every day in training.
“The players who’ve started the most games for us this season have been as good as they have been because of our culture and our environment at Melwood. No one individual is responsible for that – it’s a collective effort and that’s how I view accepting this honour."
Head over to the official club website to check to out his full statement in receiving the award. We'll likely see a few more coming the club's way in the coming weeks, too.
