Andy Robertson jokes about Jordan Henderson’s FIFA position after injury hell

Andy Robertson has joked that Jordon Henderson was set to change position on FIFA 22 following the injury crisis that almost derailed Liverpool's 2020/21 campaign.

The Scotland international, alongside defender Virgil van Dijk, was tasked with handing out the VIP copies of the new game to their team-mates courtesy of EA Sports.

One of the most entertaining interactions came with their captain, who didn't immediately seem too bothered to learn of his new rating and statistics.

Henderson's card, which remains CDM, has actually gone from an 86 rating down to an 84, with his pace going up one to 66, his shot remaining at 74, and his passing going down to 83 from 84.

On approaching Henderson in the canteen, Robertson said: "Yours has went up."

With Henderson replying: "I don't care!" Virgil van Dijk then added: "Your pace went up as well a little bit."

The left-back then told the passing Klopp: "He's a centre-back in it this year gaffer."

Later in the video, Henderson threw his card onto the ground to leave his team-mate in stitches, but reclaimed it before running off with a coffee.

Robertson's jibe came following a season in which both Van Dijk and Joe Gomez suffered serious injuries, with Joel Matip also spending time on the sidelines.

Although Liverpool rallied to finish third in the Premier League table and secure Champions League qualification, they disappointed in Europe and the domestic cups.

Both Henderson and midfield colleague Fabinho were both forced to spend time in defence to fill the void, with the Brazilian recently giving his thoughts on the position.

He told Sky Sports: "Playing as a centre-half, I learned a lot.

"I learned to enjoy playing this position because at first I didn't really enjoy it!

"But then thanks to my team-mates I improved a lot and learnt some things about the position, about leadership as well because in this position you can see almost everything, so we had to try to organise the team as well."
