The Reds captain climbed the podium on the Kop to receive the glittering prize and officially end the club’s 30-year wait to be crowned champions of England again.

He did so after another incredible season from Jürgen Klopp’s side, who moved up to 96 points with their 5-3 win over Chelsea at Anfield having collected 97 last term.

As the celebrations ensued inside the stadium, Henderson reflected on the occasion and the overall sense of achievement in a post-match interview with Sky Sports.

On the emotions of receiving the trophy…

We’ve been waiting a long time, like I said before the game. The build-up to it, walking up there was amazing. Like I said, the lads deserved the moment tonight. The families were up there watching, which was a big thing for us as a team. It’s been an amazing season and to crown it off like that was really special.

On whether there was one pivotal moment in the season…

Not really. The start was really important, of course. From then, we just grew and grew as the season went on, got stronger, more confident and ruthless really. We found a way to win on so many occasions and that’s just down to mentality. The lads have been brilliant all season and they deserve what they get now.

On Liverpool’s mentality after missing out on the title by one point last term…

It makes it even more special. After last season, getting 97 points and not winning it was hard to take, but then we reacted a few weeks later and won the Champions League. At the start of the Premier League season we knew we had unfinished business. It’s been an amazing season and I’m so thankful that I’m part of this club and part of this team that has managed to get the Premier League after 30 years.

On whether he ever dreamed he would win the Premier League…

I always dreamed, you know. The Premier League has been a dream of mine since I was a kid and that was one of the reasons why I wanted to come to Liverpool – you want to win trophies and the expectations are so high. But when you come as a young player, it’s so difficult. It’s been a process, a journey and it hasn’t happened overnight. Over the past five years since the gaffer came in, it’s been a process, a journey and every single player has been a part of that journey. To finish the season off like this has been really special. We can enjoy tonight but, after this, next season is going to be a big challenge for us. I thought tonight we showed the mentality again to come and perform like we did, and get the result we did.

On the bond among this team…

That’s the most important thing – it’s a team. Of course, you’re going to have individuals that perform but the most important thing is the team. We’re always there together for each other, it’s a really close group – as you can see – and that’s off the field and on the field. It makes a massive difference and it’s another thing the gaffer has brought since he’s come in: that togetherness in the dressing room. It has made a really big difference on the pitch.

On receiving individual praise for his performances this season…

It’s obviously nice to hear good things but, at the same time, it’s not really about me. It’s about the team. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the players I have played with since I’ve been at Liverpool, the managers that I’ve had, the coaches that I’ve worked with and the team these last few years has been immense and helped me massively. I’m lucky enough to be a part of this football club, lucky enough to work with some amazing people that have helped me. I have always tried to give everything I’ve got, I’ve always tried to improve every single season and that won’t stop until I finish.
