Liverpool captain joins Al Ettifaq

by | Jul 27, 2023 | Football

Liverpool ‘s captain, Jordan Henderson, has made a headline-grabbing transfer to join Steven Gerrard at Al Ettifaq, a team in the Saudi Pro League.

Managed by the legendary former Liverpool player, Gerrard, Al Ettifaq is rumored to be offering Henderson a substantial weekly salary of around £350,000. The contract is set to last until 2026.

Henderson’s move to the Saudi Arabian Pro League is marked by controversy, as the transfer fee involved is approximately £13 million. This transfer also marks the conclusion of his illustrious 12-year career at Anfield, where he achieved significant success, winning a total of seven major trophies during his time with Liverpool.

Before making the decision to leave Liverpool, the 33-year-old Jordan Henderson had a conversation with Jurgen Klopp to gain clarity on the amount of playing time he would receive in the upcoming season.

Liverpool is currently in the process of rebuilding their midfield, which is not yet fully complete. As part of this process, they have already brought in Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, and there is still a keen interest in signing Romeo Lavia. The club’s efforts to strengthen their midfield options likely played a role in Henderson’s decision-making process regarding his future at Anfield.
