Jürgen Klopp is known for his casual attitude toward statistics, but when his club is on the verge of breaking the record for the longest unbeaten streak in Liverpool’s illustrious history, a different fact attracted his attention. On Sunday, Jordan Henderson will join the ranks of Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, and Sami Hyypiä as the fourth Liverpool player to reach the 300 Premier League appearance mark. Even still, as Klopp pointed out, he’s already in unfamiliar terrain.
“He surpassed Gareth Barry as the player with the most passes in the Premier League, is that right?” Klopp said. “I read that and he still has four or five years to go.”
Henderson’s tally stands at 17,002 and his manager, with deliberate understatement, said: “What it says about Hendo is he is an absolutely great and very important figure in this team. He is so incredibly valuable.”
