Liverpool News: Why Klopp picked Henderson ahead of Keita vs PSG – Ferdinand | Daily Star
LIVERPOOL skipper Jordan Henderson was given the nod ahead of Naby Keita against Paris Saint-Germain because of his experience.

That is according to Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, who believes Henderson’s cool-and-calm persona earned him a spot in the team.

Despite impressing in the engine room, the £52.75m summer signing found himself dumped to the bench for the Champions League opener against PSG.

“Keita, a big-money signing in the summer, he’s looked fresh. He’s added energy to this midfield.

“I think here at Anfield as well, he’ll be one of the players who they look too to set the tone.”

“In terms of the final, you just have to use that as motivation to get back there as quickly as possible and put it right. It will certainly not have a negative effect on the team.”

Striker Roberto Firmino was named among the substitutes after suffering eye injury in the win against Tottenham on Saturday.

“We have players who can play in my position like Gini [Georginio Wijnaldum], who at the minute is doing it brilliantly. Fabinhos come in, Naby has done fantastically well.

“But it was a weird injury. These things happen in football, I’m sure he will not blame anyone.”

“At the same time we lost Emre [Can] – a fantastic player – and Chambo [Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain] through injury, and Adam [Lallana] is also out but hopefully back soon.

Daniel Sturridge and James Milner (pen) fired the hosts ahead but Thomas Meunier cut the scoreline just before the break.

“I think it is normal at a club like Liverpool. You are always going to want to sign top players. You cant say, Strengthen every area except my position.

Liverpool star James Milner is the man of the moment after his superb midfield display against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last night.

“You need that depth to win trophies. That is the challenge to be better and improve to try to help the team win as many games as possible.”

People are fast starting to realise the former England international might just be one of the finest English players of his generation after blossoming into a brilliant all-rounder late on in his career under Jurgen Klopp.

As well as scoring from the penalty spot against PSG, Milner was everywhere on the pitch and enjoyed a crunching tackle on Neymar that had Jurgen Klopp doing a cute little fist pump to himself on the touch line.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson believes last seasons Champions League run can inspire his team this campaign.

Here’s the man himself brilliantly trolling the Brazilian on Instagram, further cementing his status as a Reds legend in the making…

“We can take a lot from it, a lot of confidence from that run to the final,” he said, via the Liverpool Echo.
