Jordan Henderson hailed his Liverpool teammates for helping him set a club record following Saturday’s FA Cup final triumph.

The England international became the first Reds skipper to lift six different trophies after Jurgen Klopp’s side eventually prevailed 6-5 in a penalty shootout, following a goalless draw.

Henderson had already perfected trophy lifting process having previously held aloft the Premier League, Champions League, Carabao Cup, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.

After an absorbing contest, which mirrored the league cup final which took place earlier this season, Henderson was ultimately indebted to goalkeeper Alisson Becker, who saved from Mason Mount in the shootout, before Kostas Tsimikas stroked home the decisive penalty.

Reacting to creating a piece of personal history, Henderson told the BBC: ‘Trophies is what we are here to do.

‘To come here, work so hard to get over the line – it’s a big moment. The fans deserve it. It is pretty special.

‘We’ve had so many games in such a short space of time, but that is what it’s all about. Digging in. To win it on penalties again – a lot of credit has to go to the boys.

‘We have to give everything. Some of the talent we’ve got in the dressing room is incredible. We need to just keep going.

‘We’ve got to recover quickly – we have to be ready for that. The Wolves – then Madrid. 3 big games left and hopefully we can win all three.’
