There are many skills and abilities involved with football. I don't see why the leadership abilities that make the best Captain choices on and off the pitch should be subject to consideration of the best on pitch playing abilities. It's like saying the shrewdest negotiator at a company should be their PR representative because they are doing the best job elsewhere. A team is an entity that is together for a good proportion of the week. They only actually get on the pitch together for a very limited period of time within that. If Henderson is doing what a Captain needs to on and off the pitch then there's no need to change things. It's clearly not having a detrimental effect at the moment. I'm sure Klopp will make a decision when it's needed and not before.
