England fans have hit out at Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson, after he was announced as his country’s Player of the Year for 2019.

Henderson led Liverpool to success in the Champions League, and he has helped them stay unbeaten in the Premier League this term.

The midfielder has been central to Jurgen Klopp’s side’s success, with his performances earning great credit.

However, many England fans feel that Raheem Sterling had a greater claim to the award.

 

Sterling has enjoyed another excellent year at City, with Pep Guardiola’s men lifting the Premier League trophy last year.

Sterling has hit 20 goals across all competitions already this term, in just 30 games.

And Henderson being handed the England Player of the Year award ahead of Sterling has not gone down well with many supporters.

It may be that Liverpool’s success in the Premier League so far this season is ultimately what won Henderson the award.

Liverpool are currently 14 points clear of City in the league, and look well on their way to winning their first Premier League title.
