Wijnaldum shares the burden Liverpool players will carry this season
By Joe Nelson
Georginio Wijnaldum has admitted that Liverpool must carry the burden of high fans’ expectations this season.
The 25-year-old joined from Newcastle in a £25million deal this summer and is expected to make the starting line up for the Merseysiders’ curtainraiser at Emirates Stadium on Sunday against Arsenal.
The Dutchman, who scored 11 league goals for The Magpies last campaign, professed he is excited over starting the new season with his new club and the pressure that being at a club such as Liverpool brings.
