Jordan Henderson has been unfairly criticized for his short spell in Saudi Arabia, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said yesterday.

The England midfielder, 33, has been accused of turning his back on the LGBT community, for whom he was an ally, when he left Liverpool for the riches of Saudi Arabia, where being gay is a crime.

This week, Henderson ended his contract with Al Ettifaq and signed for Ajax.

«It looks like he’s happy and that’s the most important thing for me,» Klopp said of his former captain.

“People are really critical of Hendo and the move, first there and now they’re coming back. I don’t understand how we dare to judge these things all the time.

«We have one life and we have to make decisions. Sometimes our decisions are perfect at first and when you make them, it’s different. He thought it would be better for him and his family to come back and now he is at Ajax – a sensational club at a difficult time.»

Jordan Henderson completed a move to Dutch club Ajax on Thursday after ending his spell at Al-Ettifaq in Saudi Arabia.
