Kuyt on Georginio Wijnaldum

Dirk Kuyt used to perform with Liverpool from 2006 until 2012 where he managed to make over 200 appearances. The Dutch player has expressed his opinions concerning the latest signing that the Premier League outfit Liverpool has completed.

Liverpool signed Georginio Wijnaldum for a transfer fee of £25 million as he made his way from Newcastle United to the team of Jurgen Klopp. Even though Newcastle United went through an underwhelming season which saw them being relegated after only being able to win 9 matches from 38.

Despite the forgettable season of Newcastle United, Georginio Wijnaldum had a fairly impressive campaign as the 25 year old Dutch player was the top goal-scorer as he scored 11 goals and made consistent high level performances.

According to Dirk Kuyt, Liverpool has been keeping a close eye on the Dutch player for some time as he said:

“He was watched by the scouts already in his youth days at Feyenoord as a very great talent. When I played for Liverpool, I heard them frequently say that he would be a wonderful asset one day. It is a wonderful transfer for Gini. The best compliment for him was that his name in my time at Liverpool buzzed inside the club,”

Whether or not Georginio Wijnaldum becomes a successful player in Anfield is something that remains to be seen and only time will tell but Dirky Kuyt has backed him up for great things as he is a player that Liverpool has been keeping a close eye on for a significantly long period of time and they have finally snatched him up.

Georginio Wijnaldum will be wearing the number # 5 jersey which has been previously worn by Daniel Agger and he is hoping to be as influential as the Danish player was during his time spent in Anfield where he made over 150 appearances.
