Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has vowed to make it back fit for the start of the new Premier League season after confirming he is to miss the remainder of the current campaign with a knee injury.
Henderson went down clutching his knee against Brighton on Wednesday and was substituted off.
The England midfielder scored a brilliant long-range goal in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over the Seagulls on the south coast.
Henderson underwent a scan back on Merseyside and the results showed that surgery wouldn’t be needed.

“I’ll be working hard to be back to full fitness in just a matter of weeks in order to be fully ready for the start of the new season.
“Of course it’s not the way I’d have preferred to have finished the season on a personal level.
“But it’s been an incredible campaign for us so far as a team and as a club.
“I’ll be doing everything I can to support the boys for the final games from the sidelines.
“I’m sure the lads will ensure we finish the season off on a high.
“Thanks to everyone for the messages of support and I look forward to being back our there as soon as possible.”
Manager Jurgen Klopp promised that Henderson would lift the trophy for Liverpool, whenever that time comes.
“It was an awful moment when Hendo went down,” he said.
“In Germany we would say he’s an animal – he fights with everything.
“Everyone felt for him. He deserves to lift the trophy and he will lift the trophy.”
