STEVEN GERRARD 'agrees new two-year contract extension' to stay at Saudi club Al-Ettifaq

Friday, January 19, 2024
 – Steven Gerrard has reportedly agreed a two-year contract extension at Saudi Arabian club Al-Ettifaq.

The former Liverpool captain joined in the summer but they are only eighth in the Saudi Pro League despite bringing in several players.

Gerrard had been under press due to a winless run of nine games, during which time they have scored three goals.

His extension comes after his captain Jordan Henderson terminated his contract with the club and is reportedly undertaking a medical with Ajax today.

Al-Ettifaq have tied their man down until 2027 with this new deal, as reported by The Athletic.

The former Liverpool player moved to Saudi Arabia after being sacked by Premier League side Aston Villa in October 2022.

Prior to managing Villa, Gerrard had a three-year spell in charge of Rangers, who he led to the Scottish Premiership title in 2020-21.

He had initially turned down an approach to manage Al Ettifaq but went on to become their head coach.

The club recruited Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, Demarai Gray, Jack Hendry, and Moussa Dembele in a bid to build on their seventh-placed finish last term.
