Jordan Henderson shares the same leadership qualities as Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, according to Jason McAteer. Reds captain Henderson has played a crucial role in the team’s stunning campaign so far, which has seen them remain undefeated in the Premier League and on the verge of winning their first title in 30 years.

But you can definitely compare them and their ability to drag their side over the line

The England international faced intense criticism in his early years at Anfield following his move from Sunderland in 2011 as many claimed he would never reach Gerrard’s level.

However, McAteer claims the midfielder has shown he is able to lead his team-mates “over the line” the same way the Rangers boss used to do in his glory days.

The former Republic of Ireland international claims Henderson is still growing and improving but is among the key figures behind Liverpool’s winning mentality.

He added that his performances this season for the club are worthy of the PFA Player of the Year award.
