Liverpool deserve a trophy – Wijnaldum
Reds midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum says Liverpool’s efforts this season deserve to be rewarded with some silverware.
Jurgen Klopp’s men missed out on their first Premier League title when they were pipped by Manchester City in a race that went down to the last match of the campaign, despite just losing one game all season.
There is still one more chance for glory when they travel to Madrid on June 1 to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final and Wijnaldum believes they deserve a trophy after such a great campaign.
‘If you look back when you’re on vacation on this season, I think everyone will realise we had a really good season, a wonderful season,’ Wijnaldum told Liverpoolfc.com.
‘Ninety-seven points, we’d normally be champion with.
But in this case, City had one point more and they turned champions.
‘Overall, I think we had a good season and now is the challenge to finish with a title to make the season complete.
‘It would be really sad if we finish the season without a title, especially because I think we were quite consistent this season and we did so good.
‘I think this season deserves one.’
