Henderson confirms move to join Steven Gerrard at Saudi Pro League club Al-Ettifaq

July 27 – Former Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has confirmed his departure from the club after 12 years after becoming the latest Premier League player to move to Saudi Arabia.

The 33-year-old midfielder has signed for Al-Ettifaq following Liverpool’s reported agreement to a deal worth £12 million.

Henderson posted a farewell video to fans on his Instagram account.

“Being made the captain of Liverpool Football Club was one of the greatest honours of my life,” he said. “From the day the armband was passed to me, I did everything I could to behave like a Liverpool captain should. But the biggest honours at Liverpool weren’t personal ones, they were collective. All of us, all of you — together.”

Henderson won every major prize during his time at Liverpool, including the Champions League in 2019 and the Premier League title a year later. That title success ended Liverpool’s 30-year wait to be crowned champions of England again.

His move to Al-Ettifaq on a two-year deal sees him link up again with former Liverpool icon and ex-England captain Steven Gerrard, who was recently hired as manager of the Saudi Pro League side.
