Stan Collymore makes strong claim that Liverpool's Jordan Henderson isn't Champions League quality

Stan Collymore believes Jordan Henderson isn't the future of Liverpool's midfield.

Former Liverpool striker and current pundit Stan Collymore has taken to Twitter to suggest that Jordan Henderson may not be good enough for the Reds to move forward.

Liverpool picked up a dramatic victory over Crystal Palace on Sunday, as after Joe Ledley had put Palace in front and James Milner had been sent off for the Reds, Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke found the net to hand Jurgen Klopp a 2-1 victory at Selhurst Park.

The win leaves Liverpool three points behind sixth placed Manchester United - who they face in the Europa League on Thursday - and six points off the Champions League places.

The Reds are showing some promising signs under manager Klopp, with players such as Dejan Lovren, Emre Can and Roberto Firmino all beginning to improve under the German's leadership.

However, not all Liverpool players are impressing right now. Midfielder Jordan Henderson may have played the full 90 minutes against Palace, but his performance drew some criticism from former Liverpool striker and current pundit Stan Collymore.

Collymore took to Twitter to suggest that he doesn't think Henderson is the future of the Liverpool midfield after they lost Steven Gerrard last year, and thinks that whilst the England international is a committed, hard worker in midfield, he simply isn't good enough if Liverpool have aspirations of getting back to the Champions League - which they surely will in the coming years under Klopp.


Do you think Henderson is good enough to play in the Champions League?
