Steven Gerrard gets voted as a better captain in comparison to Jordan Henderson, even when the latter won the Premier League title playing with Liverpool.
According to a poll by ‘GiveMeSport’ showed that 80% of the fans had voted for Gerrard. Henderson was only placed at 20%. Many fans of Liverpool stated that Steven Gerrard is the all-time fan and GOAT favorite. In 2005, he had shown his loyalty towards the club as Chelsea had come asking for him but he decided to be with Liverpool.
Throughout his successful career, he has managed to win everything except for one trophy and that is the title of Premier League. He had missed out on a chance to win the title in 2014. This was when Liverpool following a consequential slip-out meant that they were going to have an excellent season until that point had been shattered. This made Demba Ba from Chelsea capitalize on the mistake that he made. It is a mistake that still haunts him.
Coming to 2020, the period of Jurgen Klopp, among Premier League and Champions League trophy, Liverpool was able to grab hold of one of them pretty convincingly.
Now, the success of the team is being led by Henderson, Gerrar’s successor. He had been written off by several fans because of his early tenure at Liverpool. He is not the captain of the club, as well as the country. Also, he is the favorite of the firm.
It needs to be addressed that just 20% of the fans that had registered on GiveMeSport’s poll felt that he is doing a better job as a captain. This reflects pretty harshly on what Henderson has achieved after the retirement of Gerrard.
However, Gerrard mentioned in his Instagram posted that he could not have passed on the captainship to a better person.
