Jordan Henderson is enchanted to be back in preparing and has provoked Liverpool to “regroup” when the Premier League season resumes.
The Liverpool chief joined his partners as they came back to Melwood on Wednesday following a two-month rest brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
Liverpool, similar to all Premier League sides, are working in little gatherings and following social removing rules as they sit tight for the resumption of contact preparing, yet Henderson says he and his partners are only glad to be back on the grass – regardless of whether the episode has placed things in context.
“It’s been great to get back and see the lads, get the balls out and be able to pass into each other and interact a little bit,” he told Sky Sports’ Patrick Davison.
“It’s been really good and something I’ve looked forward to for a while now.
“I think a lot of lads will be the same. Football is taken away from you and it’s obviously difficult because at the end of the day it’s the most important thing to us.
“But then something like this happens and it puts everything in perspective. I feel lucky to be in the position that I’m in.
“You have a lot of time to reflect and think about things, but ultimately I was itching to get back playing football as soon as possible once everything had calmed down a bit and it was safe to do so.”
