The Reds boss says that Wijnaldum’s future is not decided yet and hails his commitment.



Jurgen Klopp

preferred to talk about

Gini Wijnaldum’s

commitment and his character instead of talking about his possible departure as the reports suggest that the Dutch international will play his last game for the Reds this weekend.

Klopp refused to be drawn on Wijnaldum’s future at a press conference at Kirkby on Friday, telling reporters:

“There’s nothing to say in this moment. We have a game to play. We will see after the final whistle on Sunday.”

Wijnaldum’s contract with the club expires next month, and he doesn’t seem to be willing to stay at the club, as Barcelona and Bayern Munich seek to sign the 30-year-old midfielder, and the Reds boss insists that Wijnaldum will do his best for the team no matter what his decision is and hails Wijnaldum’s character.

He said:

“It’s not the first time we had situations like this, and the boys always did well. All of the boys show incredible character. The boys are used to being in negotiations and stuff like this.

“Gini’s character is not in question. He’s a sensational guy, a sensational guy, and completely committed to the team and to the club until the last day.

“We will see when that will be.”
