JORDAN HENDERSON will lead an emergency meeting between Premier League captains to discuss their response to the European Super League.
The Liverpool skipper, 30, is a well respected figure within English football, having led footballers' reaction during the NHS crisis last year.
And the impressive England star will again show immense leadership by bringing captains from across different clubs together amid the breakaway attempt, involving his own club, that threatens to rip apart the heart of European football.
The meeting will involve players from clubs across the ESL divide.
Henderson's Liverpool were the first 'Big Six' side in action since the diabolical plans were made official on Sunday night, as they took on Leeds last night.

But the German did reiterate his stance that he is against the abhorrent plans.
With Henderson missing through injury, Leeds old-boy James Milner stepped in as captain on the night.
And the 35-year-old also rallied against his owner's plans.
The Yorkshireman told Sky Sports: "I don’t like it and hopefully it does not happen.
