Arsenal fans might think they own pretty much every Twitter poll and Sky Sports vote out there, but Liverpool fans might have something to say about that now.
Jordan Henderson has won the vote to be on the cover of the UK version of FIFA 16, beating out one season wonder Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero (because there are no City fans to vote for him) and Thibaut Courtois, who seemed like the ideal pick from Champions Chelsea apparently. Sorry Hazard. Maybe next year mate.
It has been one hell of a week for Henderson, officially being appointed Liverpool skipper along with the illustrious award of making the FIFA cover alongside Lionel Messi.
As soon as the news about Hendo’s victory broke, Twitter reacted with more gusto than Brendan Rodgers would if having ‘character’ actually translated into three points.
Here is what Twitter had to say:
The check list is almost complete…

Congrats to Henderson on making the cover of Fifa. Only 3 years after Wilshere. Mans forever in his shadow.

While Henderson is promoting himself trying to get on the cover of FIFA, Sakho is in the gym putting the graft in. Captain not captain.
