Jurgen Klopp was asked about Jordan Henderson returning to Liverpool and his response is savage

Jurgen Klopp was asked about Jordan Henderson returning to Liverpool and his response is savage

Jordan Henderson is reportedly desperate to return to the Premier League after moving to Saudi Arabia in the summer.

Jurgen Klopp gave a swift and savage response after being asked about a potential return to Liverpool for Jordan Henderson.

Having been the club's captain, Henderson left the Reds in the summer and linked up with Steven Gerrard at Al Ettifaq in the Saudi Pro League.

Henderson was one of many high-profile players to make the controversial switch.

But months after the lucrative £12 million transfer, fresh reports claim Henderson wishes to leave and return to the Premier League.

It's claimed the England international has struggled to adapt to life in Saudi.

After Liverpool's 2-0 FA Cup third round win over Arsenal, Klopp was asked about the possibility of bringing Henderson back to the club.

But although they have been in contact, the German played down any talk of a second stint for his former skipper.

Klopp said: "Did Hendo have a press conference and say that? Ahh, it’s just written! That means for me it’s not existing.

“He didn’t call me! We spoke actually, but not about that. So really nothing to say about that.”

After ending his 12-year spell at Liverpool, Henderson has played 19 times for Al Ettifaq, who also signed his ex midfield partner Georginio Wijnaldum.

But the side are in a dire run of form and haven't won in eight games, with their last victory coming back in October.

Gerrard's assistant Ian Foster recently left the club to become manager of Plymouth Argyle in the Championship

He is said to have been pivotal in convincing Henderson to play in Saudi, yet the former Sunderland man reportedly told teammates he was weighing up his options ahead of a recent winter break.

Liverpool do have a sell-on clause in Henderson's contract, though Al Ettifaq would only consider an "incredible offer".

Henderson is said to be willing to take a hefty pay-cut but a departure would leave him with a huge tax bill.

His wages are only tax-free should he remain in the country for at least two years.
