Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum was one of Paris Saint-Germain’s prized signings over the recent summer transfer window. Although the Dutch international was linked with clubs such as Barcelona, he wound up joining PSG on a multiyear free transfer agreement.
The season has not yet ended for Wijnaldum at PSG, but for former Dutch midfielder Rafael van der Vaart, he sees that the former Liverpool talent made the wrong choice to join the Ligue 1 side, which he explained to the Dutch-based outlet NOS (via VI).
“It was a wrong choice from Wijnaldum to join PSG… making the right choice is so important,” van der Vaart said.
Wijnaldum has been a regular for PSG in all competitions this season, although he has been benched for several key matches. Overall, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino has featured the Dutch talent in his midfield trio and also upfront as a winger.
Wijnaldum sure could salvage his campaign with potent performances over the remainder of the Ligue 1 season.
