Georginio Wijnaldum already heard good stories about the selection of Paris Saint-Germain. Also trainer Mauricio Pochettino played an important role in his arrival, tells the thirty year old midfielder in an interview on the club site of the French top club.
“I am very happy to join a club like PSG. It is of course a club with very good players and a good trainer, with whom I spoke before I signed and who I know well”, says Wijnaldum. “This club plays to win titles, I look forward to that.”
“I also heard a lot of good things about the team,” continues the captain of the Dutch team. “Besides being good players, there is also a good atmosphere. I hear its a very close team, almost like a family. When you change clubs, you want the conditions to be equal or even better. And the stories about PSG are all positive.”
Wijnaldum is looking forward to its new challenge. “I already moved to another country when I left the Netherlands for the Premier League. That was good for me, because I played in the Netherlands for many years and sometimes you are ready for a new challenge. I think Im ready for that again, a new challenge and a new competition. But I cant wait to join the Champions League either.”
Wijnaldum wants to help PSG win all possible prizes. “As a football player, you always want to play with the best players, and when I watch PSG, I see great talented players and a coach who can make them even better. I immediately thought, “Wow, this would be a great team to play for.” I want to make history with this great team.”
