Loads of Liverpool fans were overjoyed with the news that captain Jordan Henderson has returned to first-team training after a short spell out with injury.

The Athletic’s James Pearce broke the news on Twitter (via @JamesPearceLFC) that the 29-year-old is edging closer to a return to the side after the Reds have gone through a difficult run.

Following the 2-1 victory against Bournemouth on Saturday, Liverpool have lost three out of their last five games in all competitions since Henderson limped off during their 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League with a hamstring injury. The Kop faithful were pleading for his return after his absence was dearly felt as they began to grow concerned about their form.

Is Jordan Henderson Liverpool's most important player?

Due to the squad’s difficulties in recent weeks, supporters exploded with delight about the news and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan described the journalist as a “beautiful man”, while another stated that this was “perfect timing”.
