Jordan Henderson: 'Criticism has helped me'

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson claims that criticism has helped him to become a better player.

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has insisted that he will not let criticism ruin his career.

The 22-year-old endured a difficult first season at Anfield following a £16m move from Sunderland in summer 2011.

However, he believes that any negativity from the media will only make him a better player.

"I don't think what's happened will have done me any harm. I think I might have needed it, to be honest," the England international told The Guardian.

"You will get criticism throughout your career. All the best players have had it at some stage and they haven't let it ruin their careers. I won't either."

Henderson has scored two goals in his last three games for Liverpool.
