'What a player', 'I love you': Some Liverpool fans react to update over 'exceptional' ace
Some Liverpool fans were reacting after the club confirmed the departure of Gini Wijnaldum.
In a Twitter post, the Merseysiders said the Netherlands international will join Paris Saint Germain.
Wijnaldum was tipped to join Barcelona for the last few weeks.
However, the Parisians came in at the last second with a more attractive offer to steal the midfielder from the clutches of the Spaniards.
The 30-year-old has enjoyed a magical time with the Reds. He played in 237 games across all competitions, lifting the Champions League and Premier League.
His most memorable moment was in the semi-final clash versus Barcelona, where the ace struck twice in two minutes. His goals were crucial, helping the team recover from 3-0 down to defeat the Catalan giants 4-3 on aggregate.
Tony Cascarino labelled him an ‘exceptional‘ player.
TBR View: Wijnaldum departure a sad moment for Liverpool
His engine was one of his key aspects. His ability to drive his team up the pitch and into the final third made him nigh-on undroppable.
Today is a sad day for those associated with Liverpool. Wijnaldum’s departure will leave a gaping hole in midfield, and one not easily filled.
Nevertheless, his time at Anfield is filled with memories as the Reds wave goodbye to a legend.
Here is how fans reacted…
