Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to an interview that midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum had after he hinted that he could leave the club in the near future.
The Dutchman left the door open for a possible exit from Anfield with his contract talks on hold after becoming an essential cog for manager Jurgen Klopp over the past few seasons. Wijnaldum admitted that he considered the club “home” and won’t be rushed into making a decision on his future. Speaking with Sky Sports News, the Netherlands international kept his cards close to his chest and left all of his options available to him.
“What would I like? It is difficult to say,” he said. “It depends on what the club wants and how the situation is at that time. We will see. [Anfield], it’s like home. I’m just focusing on bringing this season to a good end and that’s the only thing I’m thinking of.”
Wijnaldum joined the club from Newcastle for £25m in 2016 and has scored 16 goals and provided 16 assists in 169 appearances for the Merseysiders, as per TransferMarkt. Given his importance over the last few years, supporters went into meltdown after listening to what he had to say and made their feelings clear on social media.

Would be horrible to see Gini leave. Such a hard player to replace. He is perfect for our midfield.

We can’t let Gini leave, massive player for us and takes the meaning of unsung hero to whole new level. Both him and Hendo.
