Jordan Henderson to be made captain on Friday; Liverpool fans opinion split [Best Tweets]

A host of different news agencies including the Liverpool Echo, The Times and The Independent today reported that Jordan Henderson will be given the Liverpool captain’s armband on Friday.

With club legend Steven Gerrard leaving for the MLS, Brendan Rodgers was given the unenviable task of finding a new leader.

Fellow English midfielder Jordan Henderson was the most logical choice but Liverpool fans didn’t seem best pleased on social media.

The £20m signing from Sunderland will take the armband from Steven Gerrard whilst Rodgers is yet to choose his vice captain.

Opinion seemed to be split on social media with many still unconvinced by the 25 year old England international.
