Liverpool star Jordan Henderson sent playful Danny Ings transfer message by Southampton

Danny Ings struggled to make the grade at Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp assembled his world-beating team that went on to become Champions League and then Premier League winners. The England striker was clearly a likeable figure in the dressing room though, as shown by Jordan Henderson’s latest Twitter post.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been fired a funny message by Southampton after admitting he “misses” their striker, Danny Ings.

Henderson and Ings are currently on international duty together for England.

And the Reds midfielder took to Twitter to share an image of himself with his former team-mate on Merseyside, Ings.

He wrote: “Missed this man.”

And Southampton, who have seen a number of their former players make the move to Liverpool in the past, such as Adam Lallana and Virgil van Dijk, decided it was a prime opportunity to poke a little bit of fun at Henderson and his club.

“Don’t get any funny ideas, Jordan,” they quote retweeted the post.

Ings admitted last month that playing under Jurgen Klopp’s high pressing system at Liverpool helped him to thrive at Southampton.

“I’ve always been a player who has enjoyed winning the ball back for the team and the way that our manager sets us up really helps me regain possession in the final third,” Ings told The Times.

“The way we play is so intense, it suits my game.

“Unfortunately it didn’t work out at Liverpool but it was the same process up there.

“You see how many times [Roberto] Firmino is winning the ball back and Redders [Nathan Redmond] as well.

“It’s a huge part of my game. The way the game has gone, it is faster and faster every year and a lot of it is tactical.

“For No.9s now, there is a lot of work involved in that but it suits my game perfectly.”
