After Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mané left Liverpool, the pair have had a difficult task in trying to maintain their level of play in their current teams, with both the Senegalese and the Englishman having had many controversies that have not left them in peace, Hendo wishing to return as soon as possible to the Premier League while Mané 'for his part to have found prosperity at Al-Nassr after having spent difficult times at Bayern Munich.

As for the former Liverpool captain, he has a clear intention to return to England as soon as possible, being the Reds his first great option since his knowledge of the club and his legacy make it easier for his adaptation to be successful, being his only complication the great group that Jürgen Klopp formed during the summer, not needing this club the arrival of another midfielder when the reinforcements and the young players have responded in an exceptional way, leaving the addition of Hendo when the same club tries to get rid of Thiago Alcántara as soon as possible.

While Hendo is not fully accepted on Merseyside, Mane is a player that all the Reds fans would be willing to accept without any complications, but unfortunately for the club that plays at Anfield, this situation is not within the priorities of the Senegalese, finding in the Saudi Pro League the soccer stability that he had not had since his departure from the Reds, finding in Saudi Arabia the perfect opportunity to marry his fiancée Aisha Tamba.

It seems that the personal and soccer success in Saudi Arabia makes Mané think that his career in this league is the best option so far, not entering his head the idea of leaving Al Nassr who, if it has given him that value as a striker that others subtracted him, allowing him to be a protagonist alongside Cristiano Ronaldo at all times, both fighting for the league title that they pursue very closely with Al-Halil.

Former Reds stars are destined for no more returns

Just as Henderson and Mane will not see another opportunity at Liverpool at least within the next few months, other players who join this refusal to return to Merseyside are Roberto Firmino and Fabinho Tavares, elements that have not excelled in Arabia but go to South America to play with a club in the Brazilian league, both extending their search that is certainly far from the Premier League.
