Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson explains why he wanted to “kill” Luis Suarez in the early days of Liverpool, given the fact that he was quite rude during training.
Suarez was signed with Liverpool during the January 2011 transfer window. Henderson claims that he wasn’t given a good welcome by Suarez.
“I was trying to do the best I can do,” Henderson told The Greatest Game with Jamie Carragher podcast, talking of his early experiences.
“Being a footballer, there is criticism and people doubting you all the time,” he added.
“At that time, I was a young player and there were one or two things Luis did in training that I didn’t like.
“It made me feel I wasn’t good enough to be in the same team in training.”
“The arms were up like ‘what the f*ck, what is he doing’, like I shouldn’t be there.
“That really hurt me. He did it three times and then I exploded and I was ready to kill him.”
However, the two of them sorted their differences as they came very close to winning the Premier League title.
“From that point, I had a good relationship with Luis. The next game I set him up for his goal.”
“He was brilliant with me after that and I was really close to him after that and he was another big player I learned from.”
