England Under-21s skipper says he's getting better all the time at Liverpool
England Under-21s captain Jordan Henderson
says he's grown as a player and as a person since joining Liverpool.
Henderson signed for the Reds from Sunderland just days before England kicked off their European Under-21s Championship Finals campaign in June 2011.
For Stuart Pearce's side, he has missed just one game since, was voted the Under-21s Player of the Year
in February and has lead the young Lions back to the UEFA Finals, which they start against Italy in Tel Aviv on 5 June.
He has also picked up five Senior caps, including two appearances at Euro 2012.
Meanwhile, at Anfield, the 22-year-old won a League Cup winners' medal last season, reached The FA Cup with Budweiser Final and was named the Reds' Young Player of the Year.
However, after all the accolades, 86 appearances and six goals for Liverpool, he's determined to keep getting better.
"I've improved a lot since I came to the club, which is one of the main reasons I joined," he told the official Livepool website
"I knew it would help me improve as a player and I think I've improved as a person as well on and off the pitch.
"I've just got to keep doing that and keep working hard on the training pitch and off it.
"Hopefully I can keep improving and keep getting more game time."
