Liverpool fans tear into Georginio Wijnaldum following his unimpressive return to NUFC yesterday

Liverpool fans have not held back in their assessment of Georginio Wijnaldum’s display at St James’ Park yesterday, slating the former NUFC midfielder for his ‘invisible’ display – something he was guilty of during away games for Newcastle United!

The Dutchman became our second most expensive signing in the summer of 2015, arriving from PSV for £14.5m. He went on to score 11 goals in the league from midfield during his debut season, but then secured a £25m move to Anfield the following summer, with his goals being unable to save us from relegation.

He was guilty of going missing away from home during his time with us and it seems that curious trend has continued with the Reds, with all of his 17 Premier League goals for Newcastle and Liverpool coming at home.

He was on the fringes of the game yesterday and, I must admit, he was nowhere to be seen in the second half.

Jurgen Klopp has recently praised the development of his all round game, however the Liverpool fans couldn’t disagree more if their response to his performance yesterday is anything to go by.

Here’s what Liverpool fans have said about the former United midfielder following yesterday’s game:

Even NUFC editor Mark Douglas agreed, claiming it was a very familiar away performance from the midfielder:

All sounds a bit familiar, doesn’t it!
