After the Netherlands, with Feyenoord and PSV, and England with Newcastle and Liverpool, the Dutchman will discover Ligue 1 with PSG. At the end of his contract with the Reds, he made the choice to join the capital club in early July to take up a new challenge.
The PSG transfer window? “Incredible” for Wijnaldum
In an exclusive interview with RMC Sport this Thursday, July 22, the vice-captain of Oranje returned to the transfer window of his new club. And he was full of praise for the quality of the recruitment: “I was the first of these signings and I was already telling myself that I was going to join a very good team because that’s what they showed these seasons. But with these other reinforcements, it’s really amazing. It’s also a test for us: to make all these good players make a team. It’s going to be the hardest part, especially with the people who They are already thinking that we are going to win everything. It will not be easy because everyone wants to beat us because of the players we have on this team. “
“I would love to have Pogba with us”
Asked then about one of the tricolor world champions, Wijnaldum did not kick in touch by revealing all his affection for … Paul Pogba. “He is incredible, I have played against him several times and what a fabulous player!”, He confesses, before adding that “all the teams would like to have him”.
“If you ask any player from another team if he would like Paul Pogba to join him, everyone will say yes because he is an extraordinary player, full of qualities. He has it all. one of the best midfielders in the world. But the way I see football… Last year I saw it a lot: when a lot of players get injured and you always have to play with the same ones, it’s hard . There are so many games between the league, the cups, Europe, that you not only need a good eleven but also a good rotation. That’s how we form the best possible team. need all the players for a season. And coming back to your question, yes, I would love to have Paul Pogba with us here because he’s a great player. “
An admission of honesty on the part of the Dutchman more than a call of the foot to his direction. But the idea of a three-way midfield made up of Marco Verratti, Georginio Wijnaldum and Paul Pogba remains attractive.
