Liverpool fans hail Wijnaldum’s European performance

Georginio Wijnaldum helped Liverpool book their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League with an impressive showing against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

Wijnaldum played the full 90 minutes in the middle of the Liverpool midfield, helping the Reds record a 3-1 win over the German champions in the second leg of their last-16 tie.

According to WhoScored, the Netherlands international – a 2016 arrival from Newcastle United – had a pass success rate of 81 per cent, whilst he managed one shot for the visitors.

The 28-year-old is perhaps overlooked due to the bigger names in the team, but there is no question that the 5ft 9in ace is a key player for head coach Jurgen Klopp.

Following the progression to the last eight, Wijnaldum took to social media to reveal his delight and unsurprisingly, that led to a strong reaction from the adoring Liverpool fans.
