Georginio Wijnaldum explained celebration after scoring Liverpool vs Wolves stunner
The success of Georgino Wijnaldum in the thumping 4-0 win over Wolves has intensified the clamour for Liverpool to offer him a new contract.
As the Reds toasted the return of fans to Anfield with an impressive win, the midfielder played a pivotal role.
In the evening, after Mohamed Salah had put the champions in front in the first half, Wijnaldum netted the second.
The scoreline represented the male dominance of Jurgen Klopp, as they drew level with Tottenham at the Premier League summit, with Joel Matip and a Nelson Semedo own goal.
But after a blistering counter-attack, it was Wijnaldum’s goal that took most of the plaudits, netting from a distance.
And the Netherlands international conducted what has become his customary celebration in the last month following his goal.
Wheeling forward, Wijnaldum put his hand under his chin in celebration. And he has previously revealed that once Virgil van Dijk recovers from injury, he will celebrate objectives like that.
After suffering a hard knee injury in the Merseyside derby with Everton, Wijnaldum’s international and Liverpool teammate van Dijk is likely to miss the majority of the season.
During last month’s international break, he unveiled his latest tribute as he scored two targets to raise his total to 21.
However, goals have been more challenging to come by in the red of Liverpool, with the strike against Wolves his first of the season.
The impressive display only contributed to more concerns about the future of the 30-year-old, with his Liverpool deal just months away.
As ties with Barcelona continued, Wijnaldum remained coy about the situation. Asked about the current talks, he told Amazon Prime: “In my previous interview, I already said, I’m not talking about my contract situation, I’m talking about the game.”

“There’s a connection, there’s been a connection from the very first moment I came here a lot of support from the supporters, but it’s not for me to talk about that.”
Klopp admitted that he hopes that new terms will be agreed to by the former Newcastle player, outlining the close relationship that the two share.
“To be honest, I hope so He’s playing all the time, you can see that. We have a pretty good relationship. I hope so,” he said after the game.
