Jordan Henderson ‘removed from training ground’ on the back of Saudi Arabia transfer
Jordan Henderson has reportedly been removed from Liverpool’s training ground after his move to Al Ettifaq in the summer.
Henderson left Anfield as one of the club’s most successful captains having lifted the Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FA Cup, League Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and the FA Community Shield.
On the back of his departure, it has been reported that an image of Henderson has now been replaced at Liverpool’s AXA Training Centre.
According to The Echo, a picture of Henderson holding the Premier League trophy in 2020 has now been removed and replaced by an image of Trent Alexander-Arnold clutching the Champions League alongside the quote: “I'm just a normal lad from Liverpool whose dreams have just come true.”
Alexander-Arnold was appointed Liverpool vice-captain after the departure of James Milner, with Virgil van Dijk taking over as club captain from Henderson.
It has been a summer of change for Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp is relishing the challenge.
He said last week: “I was really excited about the rebuild, the new way, the new energy.
“We decided last year we had to change a lot. We are not stable yet, there are so many things not (right)… but we are really good already. Aston Villa was a really, really, really good game, but then two weeks later (against Wolves) we played a really, really, really bad first half.”
Klopp continued: “Nobody wants to see that but it's part of the deal. When you want to change things you can't expect everything to click from the first moment.
“This was the new Liverpool, Liverpool 2.0! But this was only one glimpse of what we can be, we don't know where we can end up.”
