Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has disclosed how he predicted the greatness of Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson to his team mate Sulley Muntari.
Henderson has been named PFA Players’ Player of the Year after leading Liverpool to their first Premier league title in 30 years.
According to Asamoah Gyan, he told Sulley Muntari during the trios time at Sunderland how the Liverpool skipper was destined for greatness.
“In 2011 I told Sulley [Muntari], to look at this chap (Henderson) he will be great in the future, you mark it somewhere,” Gyan told Yaw Ampofo Ankrah on Max TV.
“Henderson is one player who never give up, he is very committed and inspires his teammates even at that young age (21), he plays with passion and give his all for the team in every game, am not surprise seeing what he doing at Liverpool,” he ended.
Henderson also led Liverpool to win their sixth UEFA Champions League title as well as the FIFA Club World Cup triumph last year.
