Jordan Henderson Reveals Jurgen Klopp Text Messages After England Games

Jordan Henderson has revealed Jurgen Klopp has been texting him after every England game at the World Cup.

And it appears the Liverpool manager is excited about how Gareth Southgate’s men are getting on at the tournament – despite the fact he’s German.

Henderson has been an integral part of the Three Lions team which has made it to today’s quarter final against Sweden in Samara.

Both will be hoping Henderson can be just as important this afternoon as they look to advance past Sweden into the semi-finals.
