Gini Wijnaldum has admitted that he is not “completely happy” at Paris Saint-Germain, just months after completing a move to France.
The Dutchman was one of Jurgen Klopp’s first high-profile signings as a Liverpool manager, playing a key role in the rebuilding job under the German.
However, at the end of the 2020/21 campaign, after months of negotiations, the 30-year-old left the club to join the French giants.
Upon signing for PSG, the midfielder suggested he didn’t always feel loved by the decision makers at Anfield.
“You follow your feeling,” Wijnaldum told L’Equipe earlier this year.
“Several months ago, I had expressed the desire to stay in Liverpool but, without going into details, Liverpool did not give me the feeling of wanting to keep me.
After struggling to become a XI player with Mauricio Pochettino’s star-studded lineup, Wijnaldum has admitted that things aren’t going by plan.
“I can’t say I’m completely happy because the situation is not what I wanted,” the Netherlands international told NOS.
“But that’s football and I’ll have to learn to deal with that. I’m a fighter. I have to stay positive and work hard to turn it around.”
But obviously the Reds are missing their star too, as Klopp recently said.
“Even when we prepare for an opponent like Chelsea, we look at our games against Chelsea and see Gini running around there,
“We still have to get used to that. It is not only on the pitch we miss him but we really, really miss him in the dressing room as well.”
