Henderson plays down injury concerns

Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson has played down the seriousness of his foot injury after reports on Friday that he was suffering from an incurable injury.

On Friday evening it emerged that the midfielder had been struggling with Plantar Fasciitis from the end of last season prior to his fractured foot this season.

Henderson admitted that it's been a battle dealing with the problem and said he came to terms with the fact he may never be rid of the problem.

"It's been incredibly difficult, not just for me but for the staff as well," he was quoted as saying by the papers on Friday.

"With my metatarsal I knew exactly what kind of timescale I'd be out for but with my heel there isn't a timescale, there isn't really a cure."

However, on Saturday Henderson took to twitter to clarify his comments, claiming that he won't be in pain for the rest of his career.

"I think the injury has been blown out of proportion. I won't be in pain the rest of my career, I just need to manage it for the time being," he said on his official Twitter account.

"It's feeling much better now but just need to be careful with it. Thanks for all your support!"
