Heenan Students Interview LFC Player

A group of our media students recently had the opportunity to meet and interview LFC's Jordan Henderson, here's what happened…

What one piece of advice would you give to young footballers?

Just enjoy it.

What's your greatest career highlight so far?

Winning that first trophy with Liverpool was pretty special and representing my country is always a real honour.

Which player has inspired you most?

There's no one single player that comes to mind.

How do you prepare for a match?

I try to switch off and relax, we have a meal about three hours before kick-off with lots of carbs and then as the match draws closer I start to focus on it and the result.

On current form who will be the best player going into the world cup this summer?

Luis Suarez is on great form at the moment. Hopefully not it's not Suarez!

Do you have an pre-match rituals?

No, I know players that do that kind of thing but I don't.

What's a typical day like for you as a player?

If I'm not playing or in training then I'm in the gym.

Do you have a new pair of boots every match?

No, one every four or five games I'd say. It really depends what your boots are made out of, some players need to change theirs every match.

Which academy were you signed to and how old were you?

Sunderland at 6 or 7 years old.

What would you say was you best or most important goal?

They're all important but the couple against Swansea last week were pretty special for me.

If you didn't play football what else would you play?

I did athletics at school so maybe that or table tennis?

What's been your most memorable LFC game?

Beating Arsenal 5-1 at home was a big one but it's hard to just pick one.

Who's the most difficult player you've had to mark?

Good question!  Probably Gerrard when I played for Sunderland.

What does it take to be a pro?

Hard work and dedication. Obviously you need talent but if you give it your all you'll have a good chance.

What do you do when you're relaxing?

Playing PlayStation with my friends or spending time with my little girl.

Jordan visited our school as part of a day of activities arranged by PlayStation.
