LeBron James backs Liverpool's Jordan Henderson for FIFA 16 cover

Well, this just about settles it!

The race to feature of the front cover of FIFA 16 alongside Lionel Messi has taken another twist, and it looks good for Jordan Henderson

After EA opened the vote to the public a few weeks ago, Liverpool fans decided to get all over it like an Arsenal fan on a poll. The Reds man took a storming lead over the likes of Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and the Alan Shearer-supported Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur. 

However, Hendo will surely all be crowned the face of FIFA 16 after basketball superstar LeBron James showed his support for the England international. Posting on his Facebook account, LeBron - a Liverpool supporter - rallied round his fans to get behind Steven Gerrard's replacement, much to the delight of the red half of Merseyside.
