Besides, the whole club, the members, the supporters, the League and even the whole of France are delighted because he is just one of the best players of all time. I'm proud to be able to share the locker room with him, train with him and play the matches alongside him. So far you know, I've always played against him, and it was always really hard. So now I'm going to appreciate having him on my side. It’s even better because I’ve gotten to know him better now. He really is a truly humble person. Each of the players who will play alongside him will appreciate him because he is a very good person, “said Georginio Wijnaldum in an interview with FootMercato.
