Liverpool Football Club on Friday completed the signing of Netherlands international Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle United.
The 25-year-old has signed a long-term deal with the Reds to seal a return to the Premier League and now will jet out to join the club’s ongoing tour of the United States.
?I?m really excited because Liverpool is a big club with a great history and it?s always a dream to play for as big a club as Liverpool,? he told Liverpoolfc.com after completing a switch to Anfield.
He also commented on the prospect of working alongside Jurgen Klopp, adding, ?(He seems) a great man — from the outside — because I don?t know how he works yet and I have to work with him.
?(But) I always love to watch him, his passion as a trainer, I like how he enjoys the game. He gives something back to the group (with his passion) so I look forward to working with him.?
Wijnaldum scored 11 goals in 38 league appearances in his maiden season in England following a move from PSV Eindhoven last summer.
