Jordan Henderson has given his reaction to social media rumours suggesting of a fight between two Liverpool stars after the weekend loss to Leicester.

The Reds will head into their Champions League clash with RB Leipzig on a bad run of form, having lost their last three Premier League outings.

The defeat at the King Power sparked talk that Jurgen Klopp could be ready to walk. There was also an alleged bust-up between Alisson and Andrew Robertson.

After making two monumental mistakes against Manchester City, Alisson made a further error against Leicester when he and debutant team-mate Ozan Kabak collided – allowing Jamie Vardy to give the Foxes a 2-1 lead.

Ahead of Tuesday’s clash against Leipzig in Budapest, Henderson said: “I don’t think I even need to comment on something like that.

“Someone’s sitting behind a keyboard making rumours about the managers or the players in the dressing room, it doesn’t really need me to say anything about it.

“(They’re) Not true, though I quite liked the rumour where Robbo and Ali were having a fight about something. That made us chuckle a bit, but apart from that didn’t give it much thought.”

Henderson rubbishes Thiago criticism

During the press conference, the Reds skipper was also asked about how Thiago’s arrival has impacted the team.

The Spain star has been a regular in the side over the past month, having recovered from injury and Covid-19.

Thiago has come in for some criticism for his performances from the media and former players.

Henderson, however, has nothing but praise for the former Bayern Munich man.

He added: ‘Thiago’s been brilliant since he’s come in. Everyone knows how good a player he is. He’s been great even off the field he’s a really good person.

“He leads by example and you learn a lot off him. So I think he’s been a fantastic addition to the squad.

“He’ll probably know Leipzig better than anyone. So he’ll probably be telling one or two things to help us with that.

“He’s settled in very well like I knew he would and hopefully he’ll keep on improving each time he plays for us and get used to the way we play as a team.”
