Liverpool midfielder, Georginio Wijnaldum has insisted that the Merseyside club would not be sorry over their poor run of games especially since the beginning of 2021.
The Premier League reigning champions have been finding it difficult to win games. Since January 4, Liverpool have suffered five defeats in the Premier League. It has gotten so bad that the Merseyside club has recorded 4 successive defeats and scored just two goals in the club’s last four Premier League games.
Liverpool’s most recent misfortune came in the hands of their local rivals in Merseyside, Everton football club. Before the match, pundits thought coach Jurgen Klopp and his boys will use the game to end their record-breaking losing streak but Liverpool ended up losing 2-0.
The defeat further put a cloud on the hope of Liverpool defending the Premier League title they won last year. It even made Liverpool looked like a team that might not even qualify for a Champions League spot.
Recall that recently, Jurgen Klopp said his priority as the coach of Liverpool is not to win the Premier League title but the club’s target is to qualify for a Champions League spot. Unfortunately for Liverpool, the club is now 5 points away from a Champions League spot.
So far this season, Liverpool have recorded 7 defeats, 7 draws, and 11 wins in 25 league games which has kept them rooted on the 6th spot with 40 points, equal point with 7th placed Everton.
Despite these bad statistics against Liverpool, Georginio Wijnaldum took to his Twitter page to share a series of tweets to show solidarity with the club. In the series of tweets, the 30-year-old Netherlands international stressed that Liverpool still have games to turn things around.
Georginio Wijnaldum also told the club’s official website that Liverpool’s players have been creating a lot of goalscoring opportunities but the players have not been able to take advantage of the opportunities.
“This is a new situation we are in right now,” Wijnaldum said. “In the previous seasons when we created so many chances, we always scored a goal. And now we’re in a period where we create a lot of chances but don’t score the goal.
“It’s frustrating, especially when you’re on the pitch and you’re playing. You don’t want to feel sorry for yourself and don’t want to go into the victim role.
“You just want to deal with the situation and try to bring it to a better end, or a good end, even if you know that you have a lot of injuries. I think that’s how we should look at the situation, not be the victims but just try to turn it around.
“We have a lot of games to turn it around – if we’re going to look at the situation as victims, it’s going to be worse.
“What we can do is just try to give everything, try to keep confident, and work all together to bring it (the season) to a better end.”
Losing yesterday was painful. We are in a difficult period where we create a lot of chances but don’t score the goal. And we give away goals too easy.— Gini Wijnaldum (@GWijnaldum) February 21, 2021
We have to deal with the situation and still have a lot of games to turn it around.
Georginio Wijnaldum who has been linked with a move to Spanish side Barcelona has helped Liverpool to score two goals in 25 Premier League games so far this season.
The midfielder has played a total of 35 games in all competitions this season scoring three goals. His contract with Liverpool is expected to expire on June 30, 2021.
