Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson is spending millions on a mansion in Cheshire after it was announced he would help lead the drive for Premier League players to donate £4 million to the fight the coronavirus.
The 29-year-old has planned to create a home complete with a leisure suite, a cinema room and even a trophy corridor.
Yesterday the reds captain announced on social media that he was part of the ‘PlayersTogether’ initiative, with players to put together a fund to help those fighting Covid-19.
But despite his charitable endeavours, the father-of-three has faced backlash from his local authorities that have blasted the designs.
According to The Sun the Cheshire village’s parish council hit back at the seven-bedroom design, claiming it looked more like a ‘hotel complex’ than a home.
The plans have also been opposed as it is alleged that Henderson plans to ‘seek to demolish two substantial homes’.
An objection letter stated: ‘It is more akin to a commercial or industrial building than a dwelling”.
Artist’s impressions by architect Wake Morely show the scale of the property that will boast a barbecue area and a tennis court.
The designs also show that there will be a vast amount of green space around the property, just enough to have a kick about.
As well as this the property, if it goes ahead, should have ample space for the family to park their vehicles.
Including the £140k Mercedes-AMG GT 63 that he owns.
It is thought that Cheshire East Council will make a decision on the property next month.
