Jordan Henderson slammed by Simon Jordan over ridiculous Saudi Arabia transfer comments
Simon Jordan has let rip at Jordan Henderson after the ex-Liverpool captain finally spoke out on joining the Saudi Pro League, declaring: "I don't blame him for going there... but let's not dress it up into what it isn't."
Henderson has insisted his move to Al-Ettifaq was not fuelled by money. In an interview with The Athletic, he said he no longer felt "wanted" at Liverpool and also addressed the criticism he has faced from the LGBT+ community for moving to a country where homosexuality is illegal.
Henderson said he "can understand the anger" and told fans he is "sorry they feel that way", insisting: "My intention was never, ever to hurt anyone". However, his comments have received no shortage of backlash, as Henderson returns to England duty for the first time since his controversial decision.
Now no-nonsense former Crystal Palace chief Jordan has blasted his claim that the move was not about money.
