After Jordan Henderson endured half a year in Saudi Arabia, Aymeric Laporte also gave an interview about feeling unwell.

By signing European football stars, Saudi Arabia is trying to find another big deal in football, but more and more people seem to realize that money is not everything, even at this level. Englishman Jordan Henderson recently left his Saudi club after half a year to join Dutch club Ajax, and French world champion Karim Benzema is also said to be considering leaving. Now, Spaniard Aymeric Laporte, who moved from Manchester City to Al-Nassr half a year ago, told the sports daily AS that the situation is not easy for European footballers in Saudi Arabia.

“People here are not making things easy for us, many European players are unhappy with their situation. Of course we have to adapt, but this is a big change in our lives. It is also new for the Saudis to have experienced Europeans playing with them, they are not used to that and need “To a more serious stance. They care about us, but not enough.”

He also spoke of expecting a different quality of life in Saudi Arabia and finding it difficult to spend three hours a day in the car. However, he only said of the prospect of returning to Europe: “I'm not thinking about it at the moment, but if you're disappointed after such a short period, you'll wonder what to do.”
