Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson humiliated again as 610 fans watch match

Steven Gerrard's Al-Ettifaq played in front of their lowest crowd of the season as just 610 fans watched their 0-0 draw with Al-Feiha.

While the Saudi Pro League side attract thousands of supporters at their Prince Mohammed Bin Fahd home, averaging around 8,000 per transfermarkt, their away games have regularly been poorly attended.

Last month's trip to Al-Riyahd drew a crowd of only 696 – which was embarrassingly beat on Saturday (November 11) as a goalless draw was played out at the Al Majma'ah Stadium, a two hour drive north from the capital of Riyadh.

That's despite the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum, Demarai Gray Robin Quaison and Jack Hendry starting for Gerrard's side. Jordan Henderson was absent ahead of the international break with England.

And so too was top scorer Moussa Dembele, who has been out injured for the last month. Ettifaq sit seventh in 18-team division after 13 games played, 12 points off league leaders Al-Hilal.

They're unbeaten in three, with Gerrard saying post-match: "We defended really well and kept our second clean sheet in a row. We missed Dembele and Henderson's goal involvements."

He went on to insist their international players linking up with their countries doesn't have an impact, adding: "The breaks our players get do not effect our results. We hope to have Dembele back soon but we won't rush his return."

The Liverpool legend is the fourth-best paid manager in the world, according to The Sun, earning £15.2million a year to put him behind only Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Diego Simeone.

Henderson, meanwhile, is believed to be earning around £350,000-a-week, equating to £18.2m annually, having left Anfield in the summer transfer window to reunite with his former team-mate.
