The Premier League is coming back in a few weeks. I repeat, the Premier League is coming back in a few weeks.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson can’t wait to get going.
“I think obviously for us we still think we’ve got work to do, and we have”, Henderson told TalkSport. We’ve got nine games left and we want to win as many of them as possible.
“And that was all our focus was on really in terms of just wanting to get back and waiting for the right time to go back.
“I was always under the impression that, not only for us but for the rest of the league, it needed finishing at some point.
“We’re all back training now, so we’ve been working hard. It’s been good to get back, get some good sessions in.
“The weather’s been good to make it even more difficult, but it’s been good to get back out there.
“At first it was in small groups for the first week, which actually was quite good.
“It sort of eased us back in again, a little bit of light training, some decent sessions.
“And then obviously we went into the bigger group now and full-contract training, so that’s been really good.
“Seeing the lads on a day-to-day basis again and just having that banter [has been brilliant].
“You do miss it, so it’s nice to be back and hopefully we can just continue like this until the games get played again.”
Henderson is ready. The Premier League is in sight. There remain some very real concerns over the safety of restarting the competition. But it’s all happening soon.
