Georginio Wijnaldum has admitted his only regret at leaving Liverpool is he could not finish with a trophy.
The 30-year-old played a key role in the club’s Champions League and Premier League wins and while a third-placed finish to an injury-plagued season was, in itself, something of an achievement there was no silverware to sign off with.
After Sunday’s 2-0 win over Crystal palace, Wijnaldum said:
“I’m really happy that we still managed to turn it around and qualify for the Champions League.
“I think that’s something this club deserves, something the fans deserve – and the players also – but on the other side, also sad that it looks like it’s going to be my last game.
“The only regret I probably will have is that I couldn’t leave with a title or a prize, that would be really, really good for me, for the fans and for everyone.
“But everyone knows the circumstances we had during the season. It was really difficult – really difficult.
“But if you look how we changed it around, a few weeks ago I don’t think a lot of people would have thought that we could finish third and qualify for the Champions League. That’s a good one.
“I’m happy we could bring Liverpool to the Champions League and that I basically put them in a good spot when I leave.”
