“Well we’re obviously delighted, we’ve been talking a little while now. It’s great news for the club and for Jordan who is going to spend the best part of his career and development here at Liverpool.

“I don’t think there’s anyone better, that’s the reality of how I see it. A few months ago I was a tactical genius and performing to a good level. Then we lost a couple of games, some important games and then you’re not so good, but that is football and that’s what will happen, people will speculate.”

STORY: Liverpool vice-captain Jordan Henderson has committed his future to the Reds by signing a new long-term contract, the Premier League club said on Thursday (April 23).

No details were given on the Liverpool website but media reports indicated the midfielders’ deal was for five years and worth at least 100,000 pounds ($150,000) a week.

Henderson, who had been in contract talks for months, joined Liverpool from Sunderland in June 2011 and has made 180 appearances for the club.

With club captain Steven Gerrard moving on to Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of the season, Henderson has emerged as the next leader on the field.

“It’s great news for the club and for Jordan who is going to spend the best part of his career and development here at Liverpool.

“So obviously he’s a big part of the plans going forward, so delighted for him, delighted for the club and as I said he can continue with his development,” said manager Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool’s disappointing 2-1 FA Cup semi-final loss to Aston Villa last week increased speculation about Rodgers future at the club, but the Northern Irishman insisted he was the best person for the job.

“I don’t think there’s anyone better, that’s the reality of how I see it,” he said.

“A few months ago I was a tactical genius and performing to a good level. Then we lost a couple of games, some important games and then you’re not so good, but that is football and that’s what will happen, people will speculate.”
