Georginio made his intentions clear that following Newcastle’s relegation he wanted an immediate return to the Premier League, and in Liverpool he joins a club very much on the up.
Speaking to reporters following his switch, the attacking midfielder paid tribute to his new boss Jurgen Klopp and explained how he is looking forward to working with the charasmatic German coach.
“[He seems] a great man - from the outside - because I don’t know how he works yet and I have to work with him," the Netherlands international midfielder said, quoted by the Daily Mail.
“I always love to watch him, his passion as a trainer, I like how he enjoys the game. He gives something back to the group so I look forward to working with him.”
Wijnaldum has become Liverpool’s second addition on Friday after the club announced that former Arsenal goalkeeper Alex Manninger is to provide back up for Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius.
But Wijnaldum has undoubtedly stolen the headlines on Merseyside, and supporters can have every right to feel excited by what the attacking midfielder will offer the team this coming season.
The 25-year-old scored 11 Premier League goals for Newcastle last term, including a magnificent four in one match when the Magpies thrashed Norwich City 6-2 back in October.
