“I’m really excited because Liverpool is a big club with a great history and it’s always a dream to play for as big a club as Liverpool," Wijnaldum told the club's official website.
“[Jurgen Klopp seems] a great man – from the outside – because I don’t know how he works yet and I have to work with him.
“[But] I always love to watch him, his passion as a trainer, I like how he enjoys the game. He gives something back to the group [with his passion] so I look forward to working with him.”
