Liverpool’s Premier League title winning captain Jordan Henderson has been named England’s Footballer of the Year in the annual vote of the Football Writers’ Association (FWA).
Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford and Liverpool pair Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane made up the rest of the top five.
The 30-year-old Henderson has been central to Liverpool’s success under Juergen Klopp through his leadership and tireless midfield work.
“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,” said Henderson.
“I owe a lot to so many different people, but none more so than my current team-mates, who have just been incredible and deserve this every bit as much as I do,” he said.
