Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) midfielder Wijnaldum transferred to a Saudi Arabian club.
Saudi Arabia’s Al Etifaq announced the signing of Wijnaldum on the 3rd (local time). Al Etifac, led by manager Gerrard, recruited Henderson in this summer transfer market and then recruited Wijnaldum to strengthen the midfield. Wijnaldum and Henderson, who played as Liverpool midfielders, reunited at Al Eti Park, where Liverpool legend Gerrard leads the team.
Wijnaldum has been active in Liverpool for five seasons since the 2016-17 season, playing a key role in winning the Premier League in the 2019-20 season and the UEFA Champions League in the 2018-19 season. Afterwards, Wijnaldum moved to PSG in the 2021-22 season, but his position at PSG decreased, including being loaned to AS Roma last season. Wijnaldum was excluded from PSG’s preseason Asia tour list and was classified as an out-of-strength player, and did not get a chance to play for PSG this season. With the transfer market closed in many European countries, Wijnaldum was transferred to a Saudi Arabian professional league club. Wijnaldum made his debut for the Netherlands national team in 2011 and has been a consistent performer for the Netherlands national team, appearing in 90 international matches.소닉카지노
Al Etifaq is ranked 5th in the Saudi Arabian Professional League this season with 3 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss (10 points). Al Etifaq won a complete 3-1 victory against Damak FC in the 5th round of the 2023-24 Saudi Arabian Pro League held on the 3rd. Henderson and Dembele, who Al Etti Park acquired in this summer’s transfer market, led the team to victory by scoring both an equalizer and a comeback goal in the match. Al Etti Park continued to strengthen its strength by recruiting Wijnaldum, following Dembele and Henderson.
Wijnaldum, who made his debut in the Dutch Eredivisie from Feyenoord in the 2006-07 season, was expected to return to the Netherlands as his transfers to PSV Eindhoven and Ajax attracted attention in this summer’s transfer market, but he ended up heading to the Saudi Arabian Professional League. Wijnaldum, who has won various titles in Europe, including the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, French Ligue 1, and Dutch Eredivisie, will continue his career in Saudi Arabia.
