He's messed it up...Former Liverpool midfielder criticizes Jordan Henderson's choice Transfers

After bidding farewell to 12 years at Anfield, England midfielder Jordan Henderson has decided to move to Al Ettifaq from Liverpool.

The departure of the 33-year-old midfielder was not part of the plan, but the new players have adapted beautifully, and unlike last season, the team is now competing for the top spot.

On the other hand, Henderson’s reputation has declined sharply. Even though he was persuaded by Steven Gerrard, it was undeniable that the move to Saudi Arabia was partly due to money blindness. Moreover, he gave up after only six months and wished to return to Europe, and it must be said that his hesitation was subtle.

In addition to being selected for the England national team despite his lack of remarkable success in the Saudi Professional League, his move to Saudi Arabia was criticized for its diversity problems, despite his support for the Rainbow Laces campaign, which had the greatest impact.

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy was scathing in his criticism of the former Sunderland midfielder, who was allowed to leave after discussions with his club and join Ajax, saying that he had also ruined the reputation he had built up.

“There might be a thought in his mind that by doing that [paying way out], he kind of rights the wrongs of people accusing him of the greed and the money that he went for in the first place.”

“I think it’s probably as close to home as he can get. I don’t know if there are an abundance of offers on the table.”

“I think if this is a lesson for others looking in from afar, really think hard about – depending on your financial situation, sometimes it’s a no-brainer.”

“But he was wealthy anyway, and I think football contentment is a starting place for the rest of your life being happy.”

“There might be something other people translate to their own life.”

“But Jordan here, he’s messed it up really.”

“I don’t think from Liverpool fans’ perspective, but for a broad spectrum of football people, his character and his reputation has been damaged by this whole episode.”
