As Liverpool beat Aston Villa 2-1 this afternoon at Anfield, many Reds were left unimpressed with the performance of midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum – so much so that some Reds supporters called him ‘shocking’ and a ‘clown’.
Wijnaldum was started by manager Jurgen Klopp in midfield as the Reds improved upon their recently torrid record on Merseyside.
The Dutchman is out of contract at the end of the season with much being made over his future recently – and it’s safe to say Liverpool supporters weren’t exactly overjoyed with his outing this afternoon
According to SofaScore, the 30-year-old lost the ball six times and won just two out of his five ground duels in midfield before being taken off by Klopp in the second half.
He was also among the lowest rated players in the squad, with SofaScore giving him a 6.5/10 on the day.
Given these stats, it’s little wonder Reds weren’t impressed – find all of their verdicts down below, where it’s fair to say these fans won’t miss the Dutchman if he leaves the club this summer…
Liverpool fans hammer Wijnaldum
“Wijnaldum is shocking, seems to lose his brains anytime he has a chance to pass the ball forward during a quick attack! Must he turn and twist in every chance? We need Keita now!”
“Get the clown wijnaldum off”
“i love Wijnaldum but my god the guy has been woeful these last few games.”
“I hope he never starts for us again”
“Awful as always!!!”
“Can’t leave soon enough”
“Wijnaldum was playing?”
