first_imgLiverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum insists he has grown as a player since joining the club in 2016.The Dutchman who won a league title with PSV Eindhoven in Holland, is keen to replicate the same success with the Reds.“I’ve certainly grown as a player during my time here. The expectations are so high at such a big club and that drives you on to become better,” Wijnaldum said, as quoted by Liverpool Echo.“Before I signed for Liverpool I was playing for Newcastle mainly as a No 10. Basically, I was always attacking, I didn’t really have to do much defensive work. I didn’t really play as the No 6 or the No 8. I feel as if learning to play different roles has helped me a lot. It has made me a more all-round midfielder.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“With the calibre of players here and the technical staff, this is a great environment to learn. Walking out at Anfield is an unbelievable experience and I feel very fortunate. I try to enjoy every minute of it. We’ve come a long way as a club and I’ve been happy to contribute to that.”“It makes it easier for you to play more often and it makes it easier for the manager if he has players who can be used in different positions. You can help the team more. I think I’ve shown I have the defensive discipline to play deep as the No 6 and start the build ups with my passing. I can also play higher up the pitch and make a difference in the opposition area. Being able to do both has helped me to play so many games.”last_img
