Georginio Wijnaldum had one promising performance in Paris Saint-Germain’s UEFA Champions League return group stage fixture against RB Leipzig. While PSG did not come away from the contest with a win, the Dutch midfielder did score two goals in the match.
Overall, much has been talked about with Wijnaldum’s early run with PSG, especially as he came into the clash with RB Leipzig without having scored a mere one goal in any competition.
In the big picture, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino is pleased with the veteran Dutch midfielder’s showing in the match, which he spoke further about following the 2-2 result.
“We can’t travel into the future,” Pochettino said. “As always, we will see after the analysis which player is a starter or not. But I am happy with the goals scored that he scored.”
PSG now has a key Ligue 1 away fixture upcoming against Bordeaux. It surely will be noteworthy to see whether Wijnaldum will go on to feature in this match and if he may be slotted into the team’s setup as a base midfielder.
