Much of the talk which involves Liverpool on social media right now is to do with Jordan Henderson. Their former captain who left the club early into the transfer window has recently spoken out about his move. Although, what he said, doesn’t sit well.

Jordan Henderson signed for Al-Ettifaq in a move which nobody would have predicted prior to this summer. From a footballing perspective, moving away from Liverpool made sense. After all, he was falling further down the pecking order and wasn’t getting any younger. Therefore, guaranteeing a move to a side where you’ll get regular football at that stage in your career is a worthy pursuit.

Jordan Henderson didn’t feel wanted by Liverpool or Jurgen Klopp

Speaking to The Athletic, Henderson has sympathised with Liverpool fans, but he’s done so in the wrong way. Quoted via Fabrizio Romano, the ex-Liverpool captain appeared to blame everybody but himself, hinting that he didn’t feel wanted by Jurgen Klopp or FSG at Anfield Stadium.

Of course, this could be a misunderstanding. Communication is very liable to that, especially when the media is involved. But at face value, it doesn’t come across well. If Henderson loved the club, he would stay and fight for his spot. To be captain of the club, you are obviously wanted. I don’t know the full extent of the situation, but I feel like he brushed over his massive pay packet.

What do you make of Jordan Henderson’s move away?
