Last week’s hero was Sunderland academy product Jordan Henderson; today’s was there from eight years old.

Who’s This Week’s Hero, Johnny?

Even though the Wearsiders were relegated, he managed to enhance his reputation not just as an excellent keeper, but as a superb distributor.

He made the Young Player of the Year shortlist in 2017.

He spent much of his early years often being loaned out to lower league clubs such as Darlington, Alfreton Town, Burton Albion, Carlisle, Bradford City and Preston, before returning to play in their first team in January 2016 at a time when Sunderland were easily one of the worst teams in the league.
