While he arrived this summer at PSG, Georginio Wijnaldum still fails to show his best face with the capital club.
At the end of his contract at Liverpool the Last June 30, Georginio Wijnaldum seemed to take over the management of FC Barcelona . Only here, the PSG popped up and eventually managed to get faster to snatch his signature. In doing so, the Netherlands international became the capital club's first summer signing. However, if the expectations were high when he arrived, especially after his superb Euro achieved with the Netherlands, the least we can say is that it is a feeling of disappointment that prevails when it comes to making a first assessment.
The place of Georginio Wijnaldum already threatened?
Indeed, Georginio Wijnaldum is clearly not shown in its best light at PSG for the moment. Settled in a No.8 position, the former Reds player fails to shine. However, he does not lack willpower as he makes many efforts, both offensively and defensively, but he does not manage to shine as he can in the selection. It must be said that his role is different insofar as he plays higher with the Netherlands, something which allows him to have a better performance, but that does not detract from the fact that Mauricio Pochettino Obviously still hasn't found the formula with him. Even more, Georginio Wijnaldum suffers from the comparison with Ander Herrera and Idrissa Gueye , two men who have managed to stand out since the start of this 2021/2022 exercise, with seven goals scored between them (four for the first cited, three for the second). And while Marco Verratti could make his return to the eleven against Manchester City this Tuesday in the Champions League, nothing indicates that < strong> Mauricio Pochettino will decide to take one of the two men out of his midfield to align Georginio Wijnaldum with Marco Verratti . The position of the 30-year-old therefore seems already to be threatened, and this after only eight games played with PSG in an official match.
