“Obviously we’re out of the Champions League which this club wants to be in,”admits Henderson.
“But the Europa League is the next step and we want to win it.
“Real Sociedad are a great team and I’m sure it’s going to be really difficult. Obviously the boys will have played against [David] Silva a lot and Adnan [Januzaj] was here as a kid, so he’s a got a lot of ability.
“They’ll be very good and they’ll be at it and in our faces and won’t make it easy for us. We’ve got to be on our toes and ready for what’s coming.”
“I don’t think it will affect us massively,”he explains,
“because obviously their home advantage is taken away. It’s a nice stadium and we’ll go there and look to get the win.
“But this one is going to be really tough over two legs and we’ll have to be at our best to try to get a result.”

“Trophies are massive at this football club,”he stresses,
“and they’re well overdue, so we definitely want to win something this season. That’s what everyone in this group is working towards.”
“I’ve just got to keep ticking along, keep doing well and my best is yet to come. I’ll keep waiting for those opportunities to come and hopefully I can build a bit of momentum and show my best form.”
