Jordan Henderson responds to injury claims on Twitter

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson says that his injury is not as serious as it is being made out to be.

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has taken to social networking site Twitter to dismiss recent claims about his injury.

According to The Guardian, there is no medical cure for the heel injury that forced the England international to miss three months of Liverpool’s season.

The former Sunderland star, though, has insisted that this is not the case, making it clear on Twitter that he just needs to manage the situation for the time being.

Henderson has been on the books of Liverpool since 2011 and is one of the most improved players in the Premier League.

The return to full fitness of the 25-year-old is good news for the Reds, who are playing well at the moment and are in good form under new manager Jurgen Klopp.

It will not be easy for Henderson to reclaim his place in the Liverpool starting lineup rightaway, but he will certainly have a big role to play for the Reds as the season progresses.
