Jordan Henderson Claims He Was Ready to ‘Kill’ Luis Suárez After Liverpool Training Bust Up

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has shed light on an incident in training between himself and Luis Suárez back when the Barcelona striker played for the Reds. 

The pair spent three seasons together and although both Henderson and Suárez enjoyed some inspiring moments on the pitch – such as coming close to winning the Premier League back in the 2013/2014 season – it is apparent that there were some tense moments shared between the two at Liverpool’s Melwood ?training ground.

?Henderson has revealed that the two didn’t always see eye-to-eye, telling The Greatest Game Podcast (via ?HITC) that he wanted to kill ?Suárez in training due to the high demands of the Uruguayan. 

At the time I was trying to do the best I could do and it comes as a footballer, the criticism and people doubting you,” Henderson said. “At the time I was a young player and there was one or two things Luis did in training that I didn’t like and it made me feel like I wasn’t good enough to be in the same team.”

“The arms would go up, it was like ‘what’s he doing’, as if I shouldn’t be there. It really hurt and frustrated me. He did it one, two, three times and then I exploded and I was ready to kill him!

“But from that point I had a really good relationship with Luis, I actually set him up the game after that.”

Henderson has now featured 339 times for ?Liverpool and become a mainstay in Jürgen Klopp’s side, who currently sit eight points clear at the top of the ?Premier League table. 

Meanwhile, Suárez departed for ?Barcelona in the summer of 2014, and has since found the net 185 times in 260 games for the Catalan giants. 

After the international break, Liverpool face ?Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, before a crucial Champions League group stage fixture against Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli at Anfield. 

Meanwhile, Suárez and Barcelona travel to the Estadio Municipal de Butarque to face Leganes in the league, and face ?Borussia Dortmund at Camp Nou four days later.
