Gini Wijnaldum has announced that he is not “completely happy” at Paris Saint-Germain after joining the club from Liverpool this summer.
The Dutchman decided to leave the Reds at the end of the season after five hugely successful years on Merseyside, during which time he played a pivotal role in helping the club win the Premier League and triumph in the Champions League.
After his contract expired in the summer, the midfielder had looked like he was going to bond with compatriot Ronald Koeman in Barcelona before PSG made a tempting offer to persuade him to move to Paris.
His arrival at Parc des Princes was one of many high profile signings for the Ligue 1 giants in the summer window, as Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi all made “free” transfers to Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi. came the greatest effort of the club.
As these newcomers strengthen an already immensely talented squad, unsurprisingly there was fierce competition for places in the first few weeks of the season. Coach Mauricio Pochettino tried to get the most out of his high profile line-up.
To accommodate players like Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, the former Tottenham Hotspur coach has opted for more defensive central midfielders in the pecking order.
That has resulted in the former Newcastle United man being largely pushed off the bench in recent games, with the 30-year-old admitting that this is far from the ideal scenario despite being keen to “turn it around” .
“I can’t say that I’m completely happy,” he said at a press conference.
“The situation is not what I wanted. I’ve played a lot in recent years, I’ve always been fit and I’ve done very well. That is something different and takes some getting used to. I was really looking forward to the new step and then it happens. It’s very difficult.
“This is football and I have to learn to deal with it. I am a fighter. I have to stay positive and work hard to turn it around. “
