la descente aux enfers continue pour Georginio Wijnaldum


What’s next after this ad

La dolce vita did not last long. On August 5, Georginio Wijnaldum officially left Paris Saint-Germain. A club where he had however arrived freely in the summer of 2021, after a more than successful stint on the Liverpool side. But in the French capital, the native of Rotterdam did not live up to expectations (3 goals, 3 assists in 38 appearances in all competitions). To revive and find playing time, the Dutchman, desired by José Mourinho, took over the management of AS Roma at the beginning of the month.

“The club is pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum. The 31-year-old joins the Giallorossi on an initial loan from French champions Paris Saint-Germain. As part of the deal, there is an option for the transfer to become permanent at the end of the 2022-23 campaign.”read the press release. A new start for “Gini”, who was eager to discover Serie A and bring his qualities and high-level experience to La Louve, as he explained in an interview with the club’s official website.

Wijnaldum wanted to revive

“It’s a very good feeling to be a Roma player. Everyone I spoke to gave me great feedback about the club and its fans. The club made it clear how much they wanted me in their efforts to get the deal done, which always gives a player a lot of confidence and faith. The reception from supporters, on social media and elsewhere, has also been fantastic. I promise to give 100% and help the team achieve all their goals this season.”. But Wijnaldum will not be able to keep his word for the moment.

Came into play against Salernitana last week, he played 13 minutes (1-0 victory). His first and last match before a little while. Because last night, Roma announced that he was suffering from a major injury. “Following an injury sustained in training on Sunday afternoon, Georginio Wijnaldum then underwent medical examinations which confirmed the presence of a fractured tibia in his right leg. The player will undergo further tests in the coming days.”. A blow for the player as for his club since he could be absent for a very long time.

Injured two weeks after his arrival

This Monday, the Italian press is also worried about the Romans. “Rome in trouble. We will see it again in 2023”title the Gazzetta dello Sport. The pink paper publication indicates that the Wolf as well as the player, to whom a cast has been applied, are still reflecting on the best protocol to follow. They must also consult PSG, the club to which Wijnaldum belongs, as well as the doctors of the Dutch selection. The Friedkins, owners of Roma, will also call on their trusted doctors.

The Log adds that the middle has two options: an operation with a minimum stop of two months, even two and a half months, or a conservative therapy which would oblige him to stop three months. the Corriere dello Sport indicates, for his part, that after consulting the doctors of PSG and the Netherlands, Wijnaldum decided to have surgery very quickly. Obviously, his operation should take place this Monday. What is certain is that it is a real tile for the Netherlands, who still hope that he will be on his feet for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. But this seems compromised according to the Mail and the Log. For Paris, this is also bad news since the French club was counting on this loan to sell the Dutchman.

Roma do not rule out recruiting but…

Even if he will still have time to convince on the second half of the season in Rome, it is bad timing. Finally, the blow is hard for the Wolf, who will not count on him before 2023, the time he recovers. The Italian club, which had not included in its budget to recruit another player, will have to review its plans. the Corriere dello Sport indicates that a meeting is planned between the directors and Mourinho in order to find a solution. “One of Roma’s big summer buys is going to the mat before they even make their starting debut. The club could return to the transfer market, but replacing the Dutchman will be very difficult”writes the Italian media. Roma have about ten days to get there.

But what is certain is that it will be an arduous mission since the Dutchman already has an important place in the hearts of supporters, the club and José Mourinho, who supported him on Instagram. “Sometimes football can be crap. In just 2 weeks, Gini has become one of us thanks to his human qualities (we already knew his footballing qualities). Unfortunately, in a very unfortunate accident, he suffered a serious injury that will prevent him from playing for a long time. But it’s not just football that can be shitty sometimes, people can be too… Those who started the rumors that a super kid like Félix (Afena-Gyan) could be responsible for what happened past are real scum. Let’s all be together tonight: we play for Roma, for Wijnaldum and for Felix.”. A victory against Cremonese on Monday would be a great way to pay tribute to a Wijnaldum who has been cursed for a few months.
