Should Liverpool have gave Wijnaldum a new deal?
“I think with Gini, I think he’s frustrated. I think he’s frustrated that he hasn’t been offered a deal.
“When you see the likes of the Ox [Oxlade-Chamberlain] and that being offered deals in recent years, I think with Gini, he hasn’t been offered a deal that he wants.
“So from my understanding, he wants sort of £140k per week for three years and Liverpool only want to give him £140k for two years.”
TIF Thoughts on Wijnaldum’s future…
In Sunday’s final game of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign, it was made evidently clear the Dutch midfielder would not be playing another game for the Reds but were Liverpool right not to award him an improved contract?
We think Wijnaldum has been one of the unsung heroes in Liverpool’s recent success. His consistent game time in the Premier League has been impressive and he infamously inspired the comeback against Barcelona in the 2018/19 Champions League.
Perhaps the Merseyside club was concerned about giving him a long-term deal given he will be 31-years-old later this year, however, he has clearly shown no sign of slowing down as of yet.
