Henderson beat Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to the award by the Football Writers’ Association.
“As grateful as I am, I don’t feel like I can accept this on my own,” said the central midfielder, who lifted the Premier League trophy on Wednesday. “I don’t feel like anything I’ve achieved this season or in fact during my whole career has been done on my own.
“I owe a lot to so many different people but none more so than my current teammates, who have just been incredible and deserve this every bit as much as I do.”

Congratulations to Jordan Henderson. He’s ticked every box the FWA look for: shouting and pointing, looking really passionate, giving very serious interviews, carrying a strong redemption narrative, while also being an England international. Bravo.
