Richard Keys aims brutal dig Jordan Henderson over potential Premier League return

Richard Keys aims brutal dig Jordan Henderson over potential Premier League return

He has aimed a brutal dig at Henderson.

Richard Keys has aimed a brutal dig at Jordan Henderson over his reported desire to return to the Premier League.

It has been widely reported that Henderson wants to return to the Premier League in January, just months after securing a high-profile move to Saudi Arabia.

The England international made the move to Al Ettifaq in July to link up with former Liverpool team-mate Steven Gerrard, who had taken over as a manager there a few weeks prior.

Henderson cost the Saudi side a fee in the region of £13million, while reports on his weekly wage vary from between £350,000 to £700,000.

But results on the pitch have since been indifferent, with Al Ettifaq having not won a Saudi Pro League game since late October.

They are currently languishing in eighth place, some 28 points behind leaders Al Hilal, while Gerrard’s position is under increasing pressure.

As per Sky Sports, Al Ettifaq are aware Henderson has not settled, with the midfielder looking at other options in the winter window. However, any potential move would have to work for all parties.

As it was revealed Henderson was keen for a return to the Premier League, beIN Sports anchor Richard Keys directed a sly dig at the 33-year-old

“So Jordan Henderson wants to end his ‘Saudi hell’ and return to the PL? Really?” Keys asked on his blog. “What makes him think he’s still good enough?”

While Henderson wants to return to the UK, it’s unlikely he will be playing for former club Liverpool by the end of the window.

Speaking after watching his side knock Arsenal out of the FA Cup to progress to the fourth round, Jurgen Klopp laughed off the suggestion the Reds could be a potential destination for Henderson.

"He didn't call me," he said.

"We spoke actually but it was not about that, so really I have nothing to say about that."
