Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has finally explained why he does a shuffle before lifting a trophy.
Henderson did the quick shuffle before lifting the Champions League a year ago and then did it again when Liverpool won the Club World Cup this season.
It has turned into a trademark for the Liverpool midfielder and Henderson has now revealed Andrew Robertson provided the inspiration for the shuffle.
‘Actually I didn’t really plan on doing that, to be honest,’ Henderson told the club’s website.
‘It was a little bit of banter in the changing rooms prior. Robbo was messing about, he’d always do the shuffle pretending to lift the trophy and stuff like that.
‘So, when the time came I felt as though I just wanted to sort of do it together and use that sort of banter that we’d had previously in terms of the little shuffle and stuff.
‘I just wanted to be able to see the lads’ faces just before I lifted it as well. That was really special for me, to be able to see the lads rather than just have my back to them.
‘So, yeah, it was a little bit off the cuff, to be honest. After we did that [for] the Champions League the lads made sure I kept on doing it for the Super Cup and Club World Cup.’
Liverpool fans will be expecting Henderson to break out his trademark move when the Reds finally get their hands on the league trophy.
The Merseyside giants are within two wins of clinching their first ever Premier League title and are poised to resume action against Everton in just over two weeks time.
