Nioel of ESPN Sports has openly critized Liverpool for not renewing Wijnaldum’s contract, set to expire by January 2021.
The Former Newcastle Midfielder would be a free agent by 2021, if the Dutchman doesn’t put pen to paper before his contract with the Club expires.
Wijnaldum joined Liverpool from Newcastle for £23 million ($30m) in the summer transfer window of 2016, and has gone on to take in 166 appearances for the Reds, registering 16 goals.
“The suggestion is that they’re not going to offer him a new contract,”Nioel said.
“That makes no sense whatsoever”.
“He’s been a huge part of the success of Liverpool over the last 18 months to two years”.
“I would suggest this is absolutely crazy”.
“If you’re going to let him leave, that means you’re going to have to bring someone in better than him which is great news for Liverpool fans”.
“If you’re bringing in someone better than him then yes please, thank you very much”.
“But you’re also going to give him a contract because you’re not going to let him go for free because he’s definitely going to bring in money from 90 per cent of the teams in the world”.
“Will he leave? I don’t think he’s leaving anytime soon”.
