Liverpool have stopped in Dubai for their camp, just under an hour from Qatar, where Henderson was based with the England squad for a month.
The video posted on Liverpool’s Twitter feed showed Henderson meeting his Liverpool teammates before engaging in a conversation with Klopp, as he prepares to return to first-team action before the start of domestic football next week.
“We had a visitor in training today, the captain came and said hello to everyone,” Andy Robertson joked in the video, coming up with a caption for club’s social media team.
Henderson had a decent campaign in Qatar, even scoring in the opener in the last 16 match against Senegal, as England won 3-0 and marched towards the quarter-final.
However, his campaign ended in the last eight when France won 2-1 on Saturday night.
A day earlier, Uruguay striker Darwin Nunez rejoined the squad, while they will be tuning in to see how Ibrahima Konate gets on against Morocco.
