Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has won the Football Writers' Association Men's Footballer of the Year award.

The 30-year-old midfielder, who led Liverpool to their first league title in 30 years this season, received more than a quarter of the votes.

"As grateful as I am I don't feel like I can accept this on my own," he said.

"I owe a lot to so many people but none more so than my current team-mates, who have been incredible and deserve this every bit as much as I do."

Liverpool team-mates Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane, Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne and Manchester United's Marcus Rashford also finished in the top five.

On Wednesday Henderson, who is recovering from a knee injury, received the Premier League trophy from Reds legend Sir Kenny Dalglish at a near-empty Anfield.

Henderson added: "I accept [the award] on behalf of this whole squad, because without them I'm not in a position to be receiving this honour. These lads have made me a better player - a better leader and a better person.

"If anything I hope those who voted for me did so partly to recognise the entire team's contribution."

Henderson also lifted the Fifa Club World Cup trophy for the first time in December.

Off the pitch, Henderson has helped raise money for the NHS as part of the #PlayersTogether initiative.

Arsenal and Netherlands striker Vivianne Miedema was named the Football Writers' Association Women's Footballer of Year earlier this month.

Henderson was a key factor in Liverpool's success this season, but I think KDB deserves it better. I'm rooting for him for the PFA award.

Jordan Henderson? This season?

Please what spectacular thing did he do?

He's not even the best Liverpool player

He's not even the best midfielder in EPL

He's not even the best Henderson cos Dean Henderson was even more spectacular

This award makes no sense

Re: Jordan Henderson Wins Football Writers' Men's Footballer Of The Year by paulolee(m): 6:51am On Jul 25
still dont know why the epl media keep doing this, we all know that Henderson didnt really deserve this award and he should be below the likes of de bryne, sallah, mane and sterling if they really want to vote without sentiments..
i think its an individual award and can't understand how a Henderson with just 4 goals and 5 assist under 2244 mins played should be ahead a perfect de bryne with 11 goals and 19 assist with just 2710 mins played even outscoring some strikers like firninho(9) lacazette (10) etc..
maybe he was given the award to compensate for leading his team to epl glory after 30yrs..
congrats to Henderson but i think de bryne would endup winning the PFA player of the year because he is the best individual player in EPL, miles above the rest on that list..

Great. Considering that he was almost shipped out to Fulham at some point, he has really turned things around in his career!

Liverpool would have won the league without Hendo. The award isn't befitting at all. Who be Hendo?
Re: Jordan Henderson Wins Football Writers' Men's Footballer Of The Year by executioner(m): 6:57am On Jul 25
Nothing thrills me more than the 'Hendo feet shuffle' he does before he lifts his trophies. Magnetic. Though I think Arnold more deserving of the award this season. Anyways, YNWA!
