Jordan Henderson has expressed his gratitude towards Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, claiming that he has ‘improved tactically’ under him, Sky Sports understands.
After questions had initially been asked over his big money move to Anfield from Sunderland in the summer of 2011, the 23 year old has developed into one of the key members of Brendan Rodgers’ side, for whom he has scored three goals and contributed five assists in the league so far this season.
His performances have vastly improved his chances of being part of England’s World Cup squad this summer, where if selected he could be joined by a number of his Reds’ teammates.
One of those also hoping to be on the plane to Brazil is full-back Glen Johnson, and Rodgers is keen to secure his services at the club, according to Sky Sports.
The former Chelsea and Portsmouth man will have just one year remaining on his current deal at the end of the season, and amid links with a move to La Liga, his manager wants him to remain on Merseyside.
Johnson has made twenty-two appearances for the Reds this season, having spent two spells on the side-lines with ankle trouble.
