Jordan Henderson mural unveiled as Liverpool captain honoured for stellar year

Jordan Henderson has had a mural created in his honour after leading Liverpool to the Premier League title.

The Reds skipper has received plenty of plaudits this year for the way he has led his champion side.

His incredible season, that has seen him score four times in 40 appearances, was capped off on Friday when he was named FWA Player of the Year.

And Henderson's fondness amongst Liverpool fans was clear to see after a mural of him lifting the Premier League trophy was created on the outside of a house.

The image, which includes the words "never stop believing", is just outside Anfield.

Henderson was close to leaving Liverpool while Brendan Rodgers was in charge but stayed to prove his worth.

The artwork dedicated to Henderson was created by Redmen TV in a partnership with Murwalls LTD and is opposite the house which bears an iconic imagine of Trent Alexander Arnold's No 66 shirt.

Relief and elation has been clear to see in and around Anfield in recent weeks, but Jurgen Klopp has already got his mind set on retaining their Premier League crown next term.

There will be just a matter of weeks between this season's finale and the beginning of the following season.

But Henderson is raring to go and has echoed his manager's sentiment as they look to stay top of the pile.

He told the Daily Mail : "The day I woke up after lifting the trophy it was about the next challenge.

"I have listened to people who have won in the past and they say it is hard to win the Premier League trophy but even harder to retain it, so the challenge starts now.

"It will be a huge challenge but one myself and the team are ready for.

"I love what the gaffer said. He said that we will not defend the trophy, we will attack it.

"That is the perfect way for our football team. That is the mentality we have shown over the past year. Improve, give everything on the football pitch and in training. Give everything.

"The time off is the same for everyone. That will not be an excuse. The lads would be ready to start the new Premier League tomorrow and do everything to retain the title."
