Jordan Henderson makes an unlucky Liverpool fan’s day with a very classy gesture

A nice touch from the Reds skipper

Jordan Henderson is one of the good ones.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson set up a private meet-and-greet with a fan in Hong Kong this week, having discovered that the supporter had missed him on four separate occasions.

Nicklaus Chu had waited for six hours to meet the 27-year-old in poor weather conditions, only to see Henderson moved on quickly by the club’s security.

Chu revealed how he had missed several other chances to meet the midfielder, before he got the surprise of his life when Henderson sent him a private message.

Chu wrote on Instagram: “I am a Liverpool fan from Hong Kong, and a super @jhenderson fan. I love his passion, his hardwork, and he is the one who inspire me to never give up.

“In the first three days of #lfctourhk2017 everyday I have been waiting to see our great captain. I missed every possible chance to meet him face to face.

“The fourth day, I know that there will be an event of Jordan at around 1pm, I arrived at 12pm and started waiting, the event (was) postponed and 6 hour I stood under (sun and rain), he finally showed up and I saw him walk right past me.

“I told myself ‘no problem, when he come out, I will be here and he must see me’ and once again he walk right past me. At that moment frustrating was the only word in my head, maybe I was not meant to meet him.

“Minutes later Jordan sent me a message from IG, told me he is sorry and ask me to meet him at the hotel.

“He is the captain of Liverpool, one of the greatest football club in the world, and he said sorry to a fan for what happened that was not his fault!

“Outside the hotel, the security try to ask me to leave (like they always do), I move myself to a further spot, suddenly someone tap my shoulder again and at that moment the only thing I wanna do is to curse the security if he want to tell me to leave again, and when I look back, Jordan was right there behind the hotel door.”

“A simple and warm act of our captain, become a big dream come true for me, he can totally ignore me, but he didn’t.

“That is our great Liverpool captain. He is not only our player, he is our family.”
