Football news LIVE: Gerrard seals Saudi Arabia move, Tonali to Newcastle done, Hodgson to stay at Crystal Palace, Mount having Manchester United medical


Simon Jordan believes that Steven Gerrard’s imminent move to Saudi Arabia won’t do his managerial reputation any good, describing it as ‘a financial decision’.

TalkSPORT understands that the Liverpool legend is set to accept a lucrative offer with Saudi Arabian side Al Ettifaq, something that Jordan believes will prove to be a short-sighted move on his part.

Speaking on White and Jordan, he said: “These are not football decisions, they are financial decisions. No one can sit here and suggest that if they were in a position where they were offered the money that they wouldn’t think about it themselves.

“If you want to make a football decision that is going to take you on a journey that will make you a very successful manager and you back yourself, then you don’t need to go to Dubai or the Middle East or wherever he’s [Gerrard] going.

“In this instance, this is not a football decision, he’s not going to advance as a coach, he’s not going to enhance his reputation amongst those eyes that might look at him and go, ‘oh look at what you did in the Saudi league.’

“They’re not going to suggest that a Premier League job is going to come available as a result of that, so it’s a financial decision. So let’s characterise it for what it is.”
