Gerrard on Hendo: 'His time will come'
- Stevie G states Hendo had a pretty good tournament in Russia
- Gerrard says our captain had a fantastic season and says his best years are still to come
“I’ve been one of his defenders over the last couple of years when he’s had his critics about because I know the player and I know the person,” Gerrard told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“I spoke to him last night after the game and I said to him: ‘Look. I know you’ll be hurting right now but you should come back into the country with your head held high.’
“His time will come. He’s getting so, so close to one of these trophies and a big success in his career, and it will be making of him and people will realise the player and the leader he is.
"He's absolutely given everything for club and country and I think he's had a fantastic season" 👏— BBC 5 live Sport (@5liveSport) July 12, 2018

“He has absolutely emptied the tank for both England and Liverpool this year. He ran out of steam a little bit in extra-time, but he’s absolutely given everything for club and country and I think he’s had a fantastic season. People are starting to appreciate him now, whereas I’ve appreciated him all along.”
Like it or not, Jordan Henderson is the England system and without him we return to Roy Hodgson’s era.— Jordan Clarke (@FourFourJordan) July 11, 2018
