Jordan Henderson seeks Premier League return, willing to take financial hit

Posted : 06 January 2024

The 33-year-old is said to be considering any offers he receives this month from teams interested in bringing him back to the Premier League.


Henderson's difficulties at Al Ittifaq mirror the club's overall poor performance under manager Steven Gerrard, who faced intense scrutiny after an eight-game winless streak.


The recent resignation of assistant coach Ian Foster, who promptly joined Plymouth in the Premier League, adds to the challenges faced by the Saudi Arabian club. Both Gerrard and Foster had convinced Henderson to make the surprising move to Saudi Arabia during the summer.


Aside from grappling with a different lifestyle, Henderson has struggled with the climate conditions, including heat and humidity, and the comparatively smaller crowds, averaging around 8,000 spectators. The move has also garnered criticism, with some viewing it as a betrayal of the LGBT community.


Reports suggest that Henderson is open to accepting a substantial pay cut to facilitate his return to England, though such a move would also entail financial consequences due to the tax exemption in Saudi Arabia being contingent on honoring the initial two years of his contract.
