Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson discusses Champions League hopes

Champions League glory
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has discussed the side’s chances of winning the Champions League but insists they will not underestimate Roma.

The Anfield side will face off against the Italian giants next week in the first leg of their tie after they stunned Barcelona in the last round.

Mohamed Salah’s former club overcome a three-goal deficit to shock the Catalan giants and progress through to face Liverpool.

Now, captain Henderson has revealed he has dreamed of getting his hands on the European cup but they must take it one step at a time.

“I think you dream about those things from when you are a kid really,” said Henderson.

“Of course I have, as many other players have, but one step at a time.

No complacency
As expected, Henderson will make sure his side will not under-estimate Roma in any way after they shocked Barcelona.

“Roma are a fantastic team and it will be a tough test for us, so we will just have to wait and see,” he explained. 

“We certainly won’t under-estimate them.

“They beat Barcelona 3-0 and they are a top team. It will be a difficult game both home and away.

“I’ve watched them a few times and they’ve got some very good players. It will be a tough test, as it always would be in the semi-final of the Champions League.

“It is a challenge for us and we’ll be confident with the way we’ve been playing, especially in the last round.

“We have to go there and do what we’ve been doing and hopefully get to the final.”
