Henderson feels 'safe' after returning to Liverpool training
AFP, London :
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson insists he has felt "very safe" since his club returned to training amid the coronavirus crisis this week.
Jurgen Klopp's side began socially-distanced training in small groups on Wednesday as the Premier League steps up its bid to resume the season in June.
Although all players and staff at top-flight clubs have been tested for the virus, Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante and Watford striker Troy Deeney opted against returning to work because of fears they would not be safe.
However, England midfielder Henderson is sure everything has been done to keep players as safe as possible at Liverpool's Melwood training base.
"I feel very comfortable with all the measures that the Premier League and the club have put in place, along with my team-mates," Henderson told Sky Sports on Thursday.
"The testing, the temperature control, the social distancing and disinfecting everything has been at a really high level since we've been back. They're doing everything they can to make it as safe as possible.
"We do feel comfortable and that's why we're here training. I feel very safe at the training ground, otherwise I wouldn't be here."
