Since becoming captain of Liverpool in 2015, Henderson has taken a trophy break with the Reds, winning the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup in 2019 before finally being crowned English champions earlier this year.
The England international has also received individual recognition this year as he was named Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year for his tireless efforts in the heart of Liverpool midfield.
Henderson was also widely commended for his role in the #PlayersTogether initiative in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The former Sunderland man was instrumental in starting the charity fund, where Premier League footballers helped help those most closely involved in fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
Henderson joins a shortlist of six people, three of whom are yet to be named. Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton and English cricketer Stuart Broad are the only other two nominees to have been announced.
The winner will be determined through a public vote. The award ceremony will take place on Sunday 20th. December.
Should Henderson receive the gong, he will take on a famous role of honor. Only three footballers were named Sports Personality of the Year in the Premier League era, with Ryan Giggs being the youngest winner in 2009.
Former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham (2001) and former Liverpool striker Michael Owen (1998) are the only other two winners since the Premier League was founded in 1992.
