Midfielder Gini Wijnaldum departed Liverpool and signed for Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer during the recent summer transfer window.

The Dutchman has played 502 minutes of football for PSG so far this season.

However, Wijnaldum has not been able to hit the ground running in France. The 30-year-old is averaging a WhoScored player rating of 6.41 in the early parts of the Ligue 1 campaign.

With that being the case, Wijnaldum has stated that he is not entirely happy at PSG.

As quoted by LFC Transfer Room’s Twitter account, Wijnaldum told NOS the following: “I can’t say I’m completely happy because the situation is not what I wanted.

“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.”

Wijnaldum added: “I have played a lot in recent years, was always fit and also did very well. This is something different and that takes getting used to. I was really looking forward to the new step and then this happens. It is very difficult.”

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

Hearing that Wijnaldum is not happy with how things are going at PSG does upset us. We want the Dutchman to be happy, as he was a fine servant for Liverpool.

Wijnaldum found the back of the net 22 times and registered 16 assists in 237 appearances for the Reds.

The 30-year-old also won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and Premier League title with Liverpool.

Therefore, it was a sad day when Wijnaldum departed Anfield. In an ideal world, we would have loved to have seen the 30-year-old and the club agree on a new contract. But, it just wasn’t meant to be.
