Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has urged the club's supporters to remain patient during the coronavirus pandemic.
Henderson says the team will be ready for action when the Premier League finally resumes. Due to the spread of the coronavirus, the English Football season has been suspended until at least 30 April. The Reds were close to lifting the Premier League trophy before suspension as they needed only two wins.
It is still unclear whether the season will return as a schedule with UEFA set to hold a videoconference on Wednesday 1st April in order to discuss the European football's path following the suspension of football activity.
"This is why we keep doing the work that we’ve been given, keep doing the training stuff because there will come a time – whenever that is – that we need to go back and start training and play games pretty quickly," Henderson told Liverpool's official website.
"I’m sure all the lads are doing the stuff to keep ticking over for when we are ready to go back in when it’s safe for us to do so and we can start the Premier League again – that’s all we can do really."

"If we do that, this will sort of pass quicker than we hope. But just try to stay positive. It’s a perfect sort of chance to use our song that we sing every game in terms of You’ll Never Walk Alone – it’s the perfect opportunity for that. I’ve seen stuff on social media where the nurses were singing along to it, but stuff like that is really powerful."
"This is the time where it’s not just words, you’ve got to use it as best we can as people and as human beings. But just listen to the authorities, do your bit, do what you can and hopefully this will go sooner rather than later and everybody can get back to some sort of normality and look forward to what the future holds."
