Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum believes their ‘wonderful’ season deserves to be rewarded with some silverware at the end as the Reds look ahead to the Uefa Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur.
Having just missed out on a first title in 29 years after being edged out by one point by Premier League defending champions Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp’s side have a second chance at success in the Champions League final against Tottenham on 1 June.
Wijnaldum, one of the club’s most consistent performers this season and the midfielder with the most appearances, thinks it would be a shame not to end the campaign with some silverware.
‘Overall, I think we had a good season, and now is the challenge to finish with a title to make the season complete,’ the two-goal hero against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final told liverpoolfc.com.
‘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.
‘The last couple of games were basically games where we could only win and look at what City were doing. They won also, so fair enough that they are champions.
‘But now we have a game that we can control, so we have to bring that to a good end. It would be really special, especially because this season deserves an end like that.
‘We’re going to do everything to bring it to that end, but it’s going to be tough.’
