“I’m happy” – Liverpool’s summer signing is not worried about his lack of goals

Georginio Wijnaldum remains confident that he’ll start scoring more regularly for Liverpool.

Wijnaldum impressed in flashes of his sole season with Newcastle United, netting a squad-high for the relegated side.

Since switching the North East for Liverpool this summer, the midfielder has experienced a change of position and more defensive responsibilities.

Indeed, he is now expected to play a ‘complete’ central midfielder, rather than one focused on supporting a striker.

As such, Wijnaldum has netted just one goal in his 11 Premier League appearances for the Reds, which came in a recent 6-1 win over Watford.

Despite ongoing concerns from a portion of fans and pundits, the Holland international is pleased with the start to his Liverpool career.

Wijnaldum told Sky Sports: “I play in a different position and for the people you are always high-profile when you score goals.

“Now it’s less than I scored last season, but I still have faith that it will come. I’m just happy that I can be part of this team.

“If everyone trains 100% and we all just do our best, that makes us each a better player. Every training exercise we do is like a real game. Everyone has to be 100% and if it’s not 100% you will see.”

Wijnaldum has missed only one Premier League game this season, as he has cemented his status as a key member of Jurgen Klopp’s in-form team.

The Merseyside giants are currently one point adrift of table-toppers Chelsea, but can leapfrog the Blues with a victory over Sunderland on Saturday afternoon.
