Liverpool fans laud Georginio Wijnaldum for performance vs KRC Genk

Many Liverpool fans have been lauding Georginio Wijnaldum on social media for his ‘amazing’ performance against KRC Genk in the Champions League.

The Dutch midfielder has been one of Jurgen Klopp’s most frequently called upon options this season, with Wijnaldum playing the fifth-highest number of minutes among the Reds squad in the Premier League.

He has also now started two of their four Champions League group stage ties this term, and marked his latest outing with the opening goal on Tuesday night.

Every Premier League club’s WORST player is named and shamed in the video below…

Wijnaldum’s strike in the 14th-minute came as he prodded the ball into the roof of the net from close range, when Genk captain Sebastian Dewaest failed to clear James Milner’s low cross.

Opening the scoring also meant that three of Wijnaldum’s last four goals for Liverpool have come in the Champions League, following the £75,000-per-week midfielder’s brace in the semi-final second-leg comeback win against Barcelona in May.

Tuesday night’s encounter with Genk was not an affair which the Dutchman only had a goal to show for his efforts, either, as fans have lauded the 28-year-old for helping to set the pace against the Belgian side.
