I Held Talks With Tottenham Before I Joined Liverpool – Georginio Wijnaldum

share on:

Georginio Wijnaldum has revealed that he held talks with Tottenham before deciding to join Liverpool in 2016.

Georginio Wijnaldum¬†scored 11 goals from 38 outings during his first season in the Premier League, and Newcastle United’s relegation led to the Magpies cashing in on the Dutchman.

The 27-year-old has enjoyed a successful two years at Anfield, but the player has suggested that his career could have taken a different path.

Wijnaldum told The Telegraph: ” I met [Mauricio] Pochettino when I left Newcastle. I just felt Liverpool wanted to come to an agreement quickly.

“Tottenham have shown over the years the quality of their players and manager. I see Tottenham as a team like us, wanting to play good football. They are always looking for solutions in the game and play as we do.”
