Henderson not even thinking about football at the moment

He may be alone, amongst fans of LFC, but Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says he isn't even thinking about football at the moment.

After a long, hard-fought season, Liverpool had put themselves in a position to be 25 points clear with just 9 games remaining. Although Man City do have a game in hand.

But it's all over pretty much, with Liverpool needing just a couple of results to clinch the title. The Covid-19 pandemic though, has put the world in perspective, and football has slipped a bit further down the pecking order in the grand scheme of what's important. And what isn't.

Interviewed by Liverpoolfc.com, Henderson said: "Football isn't even in the thought at the minute.

"Of course myself and other players will be wanting to get back as soon as possible and be chomping at the bit to go and play football.

"But at the same time, you understand that there's bigger problems and bigger things going on in the world.

"We just need to do our best to support our families, stay safe and just keep listening to what the authorities are telling us. And hopefully this period can finish sooner rather than later and everybody can start some normality off again sooner rather than later."

It's looking every more likely that the Reds will now not get their season underway again until June or July, as the Coronavirus crisis has yet to get anywhere near its peak in the UK.

Hopefully the fans can return to Anfield over the next few months though, to see the boys bring home number 19 and Henderson says the players are looking forward to seeing the fans again, as much as we're looking forward to seeing them.

He finished the interview, by saying: "We're missing them too, that's for sure! I would just say stay safe, of course, stay inside and keep listening to all the advice that the government and the authorities have given us. If we do that, this will sort of pass quicker than we hope.

"But just try to stay positive. It's a perfect sort of chance to use our song that we sing every game in terms of You'll Never Walk Alone – it's the perfect opportunity for that.

"I've seen stuff on social media where the nurses were singing along to it, but stuff like that is really powerful. This is the time where it's not just words, you've got to use it as best we can as people and as human beings.

"But just listen to the authorities, do your bit, do what you can and hopefully this will go sooner rather than later and everybody can get back to some sort of normality and look forward to what the future holds."
