Watch: ‘Aw what a pass’ – Henderson’s brilliant reaction to Sadio Mane assist

Having led Jurgen Klopp’s side to Champions League glory in 2019, Henderson then captained the Reds to their first Premier League title in 2020.

While Diogo Jota’s hat-trick stole the headlines, the midfielder led by example in their 5-0 win over Atalanta in the Champions League.

During a clip released by the club, the 30-year-old can be he heard praising his team-mates and shouting instructions throughout the game.

Henderson was particulate impressed by Sadio Mane’s assist for Jota’s third goal, with the England international audibly shouting: “Aw, what a pass! What a pass!”
