Henderson is one player who never gives up, he is very committed and inspires his teammates even at that young age (21), he plays with passion and gives his all for the team in every game, I’m not surprised seeing what he’s doing at Liverpool”, he concluded.
The 34-year-old played with Muntari and Henderson at Sunderland in 2011 after the 2010 World Cup.
He scored 11 goals in 36 matches played at Sunderland between 2010 and 2012. The former Rennes striker then joined Al Ain in 2012 to the displeasure of Sunderland fans.
