The 'adventure' of Georginio Wijnaldum in Paris Saint-Germain has been far to fulfil with the expectations that had after his arrival during the past market of signings. The Dutch 'landed' in the French capital like one of the 'flamantes' incorporations of the summer for the 'red and blue', those who had done with the services of Sergio Bouquets, Lionel Messi and Gianluigi Donnarumma. In spite of this, his first course like player of the Parisians has been a disappointment and the footballer was appointed like the "Failure of the year 2022 of Tie it 1".

It is important to remember that the midfield player was near to join to the rows of the FC Barcelona during the window estival of the 2021. After having decided not renewing his stay in Liverpool, the Catalans did all the possible for carrying it to the Camp Nou, since Ronald Koeman (trainer culé in that moment) was the big valedor of the footballer. Nevertheless, the money qatarí entrometió to last hour in the negotiations and finished convincing to the Dutch, the one who left thrown to the blaugranas to melt the blue T-shirt.

Even so, Wijnaldum expressed with a lot of respect on the institution barcelonista in some statements in which it justified his decision. "We were weeks negotiating with the Barcelona, but the club did not finish to give the step and Paris Saint-Germain appeared and was faster and more resolutivo. It was difficult to say that no to the Barça because it was of the first clubs in interesting by me and is one of the big, but am happy with my decision", went the words of the of Róterdam.

Now, the web 'Get French Football News', after contabilizar 100 one thousand votes of the public and consulting the opinion of experts, has appointed to the mediocampista like the "Failure of the year 2022 of Tie it 1". In his first season in the Park of the Princes, Georginio contested 38 parties (22 of them like titling) in which only it annotated 3 so many and gave 3 assistances. Figures very poor for a player whose capacity of arrival was one of his main attributes.

His participation in the World-wide is in the 'air'

The low performance showed along the past campaign has carried to Louis Go Gaal, trainer of the Low Countries, to separate it of the national selection. The footballer was a fixed in the announcements of the Dutch team, but from his arrival to the PSG has lost his place in hands of other mediocampistas that go through a better present, and with the World-wide to the 'gone back of the corner', his participation is increasingly in entredicho. In the meantime, the player has agreement until 2024 in the square capitalina, and everything indicates to that will be still in Paris, at least, by a season more.
