Gini Wijnaldum will go down in Liverpool’s folklore as the greatest dutch player to ever play for the club. The 29-year-old is a world class utility man who can change the course of any game with a goal or assist.
He demonstrated his world class abilities by scoring two goals against Barcelona at Anfield to overturn a 3-0 defeat. His superb finishing coupled with his defiant header meant Liverpool were going to reach the final of the Champions League for the second time in two years and eventually win it against Tottenham Hotspur.
Wijnaldum also played a massive part in Liverpool winning the UEFA Super Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup and finally, their first ever Premier League title in 30 years.
His industry in midfield, attacking runs and goals were definitely key to Liverpool winning so many trophies under Jurggen Klopp but, its time the Reds forget the past and forge ahead.
Liverpool need midfielder who can orchestrate the tempo of the match and make them unpredictable like Xabi Alonso once did.
A player who can distribute the ball intelligently while carving out defenses with one simple pass. A player like Thiago Alcantara will take Liverpool to a whole new level.
Thiago is so similar to Liverpool legend Xavi Alonso but much faster and stronger. Bringing him to Liverpool will instantly give the Reds the platform to retain the Premier League title.
He will add enormous creativity to a dedicated and hardworking midfield trio of Liverpool and provide them third option of breaking down defenses after Trent Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson. In fact, Liverpool can start dreaming of winning a 7th Champions League trophy with Thiago Alcantara who lead Bayern Munich last season to a historic treble.
The midfielder is arguably the best deep playing midfielder in the world and he proved his pedigree by leading Bayern Munich to a 7-1 win over Chelsea and a 8-2 win over Barcleona. Mason Mount admitted he struggled to get close to Brazilian born defender.
While Wayne Rooney publicly stated that Liverpool will retain the Premier League title with him cause, he is really that good.
Selling Gini WIjnaldum to Barcelona might raise eyebrows but once Thiago Alcantara gets into gear, Liverpool will be unstoppable.
