Liverpool Legend Gerrard Compares Successor Henderson To Scholes

From Wiki Fintech

[/sport/teampages/liverpool.html Liverpool] legend Steven Gerrard feels his successor to the armband Jordan Henderson is now influencing games to the level of Paul Scholes.
Gerrard was asked this week by BT Sport for his opinions on his former team-mate Henderson, who is on the brink of an eagerly awaited [/sport/premierleague/index.html Premier League] title win with the Reds.
Henderson is poised to do what Gerrard was unable to on Merseyside, and the Liverpool legend insists it was always apparent that his understudy was destined for the top.

"When you play alongside him you appreciate the job he does for the team."

"He's running games with control a bit like how Paul Scholes used to do it."

'It's no surprise to me how he's handling himself on and off the pitch,' said Gerrard.
'Obviously I played with him for numerous years with Liverpool and England. A very fit, athletic boy who's selfless in his approach on the pitch, puts everyone else above himself.
'When you play alongside him you appreciate the job he does for the team and I think over the years he's been developing parts of his game. His passing range now is fantastic.'
Such is the versatility of Henderson's game, Gerrard feels the Liverpool number 14 is able to do what the legendary Scholes did for arch rivals Manchester United, in setting the tempo of matches and keeping his team on top. 
Gerrard handed the armband to Henderson in 2015 before departing the club for LA Galaxy
'He's running games with control a bit like Paul Scholes used to do it and http://wiki.hnjhj.com/index.php?title=Shedding_The_WAG_Tag:_How_Today_apos;s_Footballers_apos;_Wives_Are_Less_Chardonnay_And_More_Chanel he's leading by example. He's always there for the team,' Gerrard continued.
'I've watched him grow as a human being with interest, he's always been a great lad and a great team-mate. It's no surprise now that people are starting to recognise what a man he is, both on and off the pitch. 
'Every bit of praise he gets he deserves it because it'd true, and I can guarantee that because i've been alongside him.'
Henderson has been a driving force for the Reds and helped bring silverware back to Anfield
