Jordan Henderson is an England international who plays as a central midfielder for the Liverpool football club. The 31-year-old joined the Reds back in 2011, but it took him some time to earn the utmost respect of the Anfield faithful. Often compared to the club’s previous legendary midfielder Steven Gerrard, he plans to continue playing for Liverpool like the former. He also made over 60 appearances for the England national team as well. He started his career in Sunderland, his hometown, and has gone from strength to strength to build a significant net worth. Let’s take a look at his numbers by year.
Early Football development:
Born in 1990, in Sunderland, his household was obsessed with football. And he joined the Sunderland youth system at the age of eight. Jordan Henderson caught the eyes of the selectors, and he was offered a professional contract at the club back in 2008. However, he was loaned out to the Championship side Coventry City in the following year.
After spending one year there, he returned to Sunderland and broke into the first team immediately. Most of the time he played as a central midfielder but on the right side. His brilliant performances earned him the best young player title back in the 2010-11 season.
Life at Merseyside:
Liverpool agreed on a fee of a region between £16 and £20 million with Sunderland, to sign Henderson. His first few years at Anfield were a bit tough as his performances were not up to the mark. Even the Liverpool fans wanted him out of the club as soon as possible. However, the appointment of Jurgen Klopp changed the scene completely. The German got the best out of Henderson. And he was also named the club captain. He significantly improved his net worth as well. He has a net worth of £23 million. According to Transfermarkt, his current market value stands at €18 million. His Liverpool salary also contributes generously to his net worth. He earns a base salary of £7,280,000.
The Liverpool captain has won the prestigious Champions League and the Premier League. And he still wants to win more. He has recently signed an extension, so the fans were quite delighted by this as well.
