Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum has explained the reason why he chose to wear number 5 at the back of his jersey.
Wijnaldum has been a Liverpool player since 2016, having signed from Newcastle United.
During this season, the central midfielder has made 38 appearances so far in which he has scored 5 goals.
“Number five is a really special number for me,” Wijnaldum said in an Instagram Live broadcast.
“It was my lucky number when I was young but also because my favourite player, Zinedine Zidane, was playing with number five.
“I was really happy that I could start my professional career as number five.
“Since then I’ve played with number five at Newcastle and when I came to Liverpool, the club basically kept number five for me. I was really happy with that.”
