Euro 2024 qualifiers: Your future is in jeopardy – Joe Cole slams England star after 1-1 draw with Ukraine

Former Chelsea forward, Joe Cole, has said that the future of England midfielder, Jordan Henderson is in ‘jeopardy.’

He noted that the Saudi-based star has put manager Gareth Southgate in a ‘difficult position’.

The midfielder left Liverpool for Al-Ettifaq in the Saudi Pro League this summer. 

Cole believes that Henderson’s England future is in doubt as the standard of the Saudi Pro League is so far behind Europe’s elite leagues.

“From a footballing perspective, I can understand why it puts Gareth in a difficult position,” Cole told Channel 4.

“When you’re competing with the players Henderson is competing with – Rice, Bellingham, Ward-Prowse, Phillips – they are all playing in the Champions League [and Europa League].

“Is he going to be as sharp as he was? You have to remember the margins that England went out with against France at the last World Cup.

“You have to be so sharp, every player on the pitch. Henderson will know he’s put his England future in jeopardy.”
