Henderson determined to keep improving

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson doesn’t want to rest on his laurels, after lifting the European Cup, Super Cup, Club World Cup and Premier League trophy in little over a year.

The 30-year old midfielder believes the Reds can improve further and continue to dominate, as Jurgen Klopp’s men prepare for the new season, kicking off with the Community Shield against Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

“I feel there’s still a lot more to come,” Henderson told the official site. “We can be a lot better.

“I know people will say, ‘Well, how?’ but trust us, in certain games we’ve played, in training sessions, we can still improve. Individuals can still get even better again.

“I still feel as though there is a lot more to come from all of us and if we want to be one of the best teams, then you need to do it consistently – you can’t just do it for a few years and then that’s it. You need to keep going and going and going.

“I look at what a lot of ex-players that have won trophies have said; it’s hard to win one but then it’s even harder to then win another one and another one and keep going. I can certainly see that and we understand that, so it’s just about basically doing what we’ve been doing for a long period of time and focusing on the right things, not getting carried away and not getting too down.

“There will be moments within a season where you maybe have a loss of form, or you’re not playing particularly well or whatever. You will have those moments and it’s about how you deal with them – and we always deal with situations in the right way and we need to continue to do that if we want to be successful again.”
