Liverpool fans loved watching footage of Georginio Wijnaldum pull off an audacious flick in training.
The 29-year-old has become an integral part of manager Jurgen Klopp’s squad since his arrival at Anfield in 2016. He was key to helping the Reds lift their sixth Champions League crown last season, with his brace off the bench against Barcelona in the semi-final.
He has scored just once from 14 Premier League games this season as the Dutchman has helped his side move eight points clear at the summit.
Here is the footage that the club’s official Twitter account released.
Superb free-kick from Sadio… 🤩

As he prepared for last night’s Merseyside derby, he pulled off a valorous flick which set up his Senegalese teammate Sadio Mane to score a stunning free-kick past Roberto Firmino.
Supporters were in awe of Wijnaldum’s piece of skill and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan described his flick as “marvellous”, while another said that Wijnaldum’s skill was far more impressive than Mane’s free-kick.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Liverpool fans:
