Barely two days after lifting the English Premier League for the club, Jordan Henderson; the Liverpool captain has won the Football Writers' Association Men's Footballer of the Year award.



The 30-year-old midfielder, who led Liverpool to their first league title in 30 years this season, received more than a quarter of the votes.

"As grateful as I am I don't feel like I can accept this on my own," he said.

"I owe a lot to so many people but none more so than my current team-mates, who have been incredible and deserve this every bit as much as I do."

Other players that received votes are his Liverpool team-mates Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane, Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne and Manchester United's Marcus Rashford also finished in the top five.

Henderson said: "I accept [the award] on behalf of this whole squad, because without them I'm not in a position to be receiving this honour. These lads have made me a better player - a better leader and a better person.

"If anything I hope those who voted for me did so partly to recognise the entire team's contribution."

Though, a lot of people tipped the Manchester City midfielder; Kelvin for the award but seem the off pitch contributions of Henderson won him the award.
