Liverpool hero admits to not knowing his limits

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has admitted that he does not know his limits.

Jordan Henderson has admitted that he sometimes needs to be reined in by Liverpool.

The midfielder was the Anfield club's saviour last weekend as his late goal ensured victory in their seven-goal thriller with Swansea City, which kept Brendan Rodgers' side in the box seat for Champions League qualification as well as an outside chance of the Premier League title.

Henderson's reputation as a tireless performer is expected to see him stake a claim in England's World Cup squad this summer but the 23-year-old concedes that his desire to succeed sometimes leads to overexertion. which occasionally requires a word of warning from the Liverpool coaching staff.

"Sometimes I need people to tell me to rest. After training, I like to do a little bit extra," he told the club's official website.

"A few of us do a bit of shooting or whatever it might be, but sometimes you need to give your legs a rest and prepare for the game in the best way that you can.

"We have the right people at the club to tell you when you can and when you can't do the extra bit."
