We recruit from Paris Saint-Germain, the Dutch international explained his choice on the official website of the club in the capital.
Georginio Wijnaldum signed this Thursday with Paris Saint-Germain until 2024. A big blow for the capital club, which recovers a sacred player in the Champions League two seasons ago. Asked about his choice, the Dutch midfielder notably stressed that his discussions with Mauricio Pochettino had been important.
Pochettino convinced Wijnaldum!
“I am very happy to be able to join a club like Paris Saint-Germain! It is obviously a club with very good players, a good manager who I spoke to before joining the club and whom I know well. It’s a club that plays to lift titles, to win, so I’m really, really looking forward to joining the team. I have heard a lot of good things about the team. Obviously, its very good players, but also the atmosphere that reigns there. I’ve heard that it’s a tight-knit team like a family. When you change a team for another team, you want it to be the same or even better. And the stories I heard from the Paris team were all positive, so I can’t wait to join this team. “
