Saudi League Doesn’t Suit Me, I Made Mistake – Henderson

Former Liverpool captain, Jordan Henderson has admitted that moving to the Saudi Pro League, SPL, ahead of the ongoing campaign was a mistake.

Henderson, who now plays for Ajax, insisted that the SPL doesn’t suit him.

The midfielder left Liverpool to secure a £12 million permanent switch to SPL club Al-Ettifaq.

However, he decided to leave the Steven Gerrard-coached side in the winter transfer window after failing to settle in Saudi Arabia.

The England international said (h/t X/@TheEuropeanLad):
“I now realize that football runs through my blood. The Saudi league is developing but it doesn’t suit me, I made a mistake going there.

” I am happy here at the Ajax project.”
