The 24-year-old has grown in stature this term, and Can believes the players can learn a lot from Henderson
“You should never give up and you can see that Jordan has never given up,” Can told the club’s official website.
“He has had the confidence shown in him and it’s great that he has been able to captain the team.
“He has got a lot of qualities and you can see that on the training ground every day, as well as every game. He’s deserved to be the captain.
“I can learn a lot from him – I am a couple of years younger than Jordan. He gives 100 per cent all the time and he works hard on his own game.
“He is full of confidence and never gives up. He is always there for the team, both on and off the pitch.
“[Philippe] Coutinho has also just signed [a new contract], and that shows the club has got a great future with young players.
“It’s great that young players are signing these contracts for the club.”
