“It’s a really big club. Everywhere you go people know Liverpool,” Wijnaldum was quoted by Goal.
“On my vacation, a lot of people came to me and congratulated me for the Champions League.”

“Because I know how it feels right now, I want it again. That’s why I came back hungry, the guys also came back hungry to achieve even more.”
“It’s a good feeling and it’s the feeling you want to get used to, winning trophies like that. That’s why everyone is hungry to do even better this year and win more,” the Dutchman concluded.
