PREMIER - Henderson: I try to help younger players as much as possible

Published on: 25 November 2021

Henderson, the captain of Liverpool, was interviewed alongside Fran Kirby of Chelsea in the One on One series, in which two athletes are given a set of questions to answer together.

The couple was asked about their amazement at the importance of mental health in sports since they began playing.

Henderson's reply was:

“The mental side is a huge part of any sport. I try to help younger players as much as possible — make sure they don’t get too worried about what people are saying on social media or in the press, things like that.

“That can have a huge impact on a player’s performance. When I joined Liverpool at 20, there were points where I was in a bad place mentally.

“So having experienced that, if I can use my platform to raise awareness and help some people feel better, that’s incredibly important to me.

“Now it’s not really a question of “Should I say something or not?” I’ve been there myself, so I need to do that.

“I need to try and help people”.
