Liverpool star Henderson ready to gamble

Jordan Henderson is ready to gamble his Liverpool career on his ability to become a playmaker.

The £20m summer signing from Sunderland admits he is taking too many safe options at Anfield.

And now he wants to broaden his game by changing his style of play to become a potential match winner.

But he knows that could bring stick from supporters if he fails to pull it off.

Henderson said: ``It is important to maintain possession to a certain extent.

``Sometimes I can be a little bit cautious in keeping the ball, playing a safe pass rather than an adventurous one.

``Maybe I need to take more risks going forward. I need to look for runners and give the ball more quickly.

``It is those little balls through that create chances I need to improve on. I know with hard work and listening to the coaches at Liverpool I will certainly get better.''

Henderson has been a regular feature in the Reds line-up this season with boss Kenny Dalglish convinced he is destined to be a major star for club and country.
