Georginio Wijnaldum Fanatic about the Number 5 jersey because of Zinedine Zidane
DBasia.news – Since arriving in England, Georginio Wijnaldum faithfully wore the number 5 jersey. It began in the 2015-16 season when Newcastle United were transported from PSV Eindhoven, then continued from the following season to this date with Liverpool.
There is a separate reason that made Georginio Wijnaldum choose the number 5 jersey. One of them, the thing that made him even more fanatical, was Zinedine Zidane.
“Number 5 is very special to me,” Georginio Wijnaldum told Live Instagram, as quoted by Voetbal International. “That was my lucky number as a child. Also because my favorite player, Zinedine Zidane, wears number 5. “
Wijnaldum said he was thrilled to be able to continue wearing the number 5 jersey. “I played with the number 5 jersey since I was at Newcastle United. When transported by Liverpool, they kept that number for me too. I’m really thrilled about it, “he said.
