Gini Wijnaldum Stars For Liverpool Despite Suffering From Diarrhoea The Night Before

Gini Wijnaldum's 'Man of the Match' performance against Bournemouth is all the more impressive considering he had the sh*ts the night before.

The Dutchman starred for Liverpool in midfield, scoring a superb goal in the first-half and following his brilliant outing, Jurgen Klopp revealed he had diarrhoea leading up to the match.

"Last night Gini was not in the team hotel because he had pretty much everything you don't want to have the night before a game," the Liverpool boss said in his post-match interview.

"He had diarrhoea and vomiting two nights earlier so he couldn't come to the team hotel.

"That's the news you get in the morning, before the last session of the week. Then he said after a couple of hours' sleep that he felt really good and could play, but the doc said he is still infectious so stay away."

Before hilariously talking about his only concern for Wijnaldum during the game.

"I was only concerned today when he scored a goal and everybody give him a hug, to be honest! That was a problem," he added.

Wijnaldum rising from his sick bed, and producing a showing like he did on Saturday is just the spirit and desire Liverpool need at this crucial stage as they mount a challenge to win the Premier League title.

Meanwhile, Liverpool resume their 2018/19 campaign by venturing into the Champions League. They host Bayern Munich on February 19th in the first-leg of their knockout round tie.

A few days later, Liverpool travel to Old Trafford to face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's red-hot Manchester United.
