Liverpool Fans Slam Gini Wijnaldum For Reaction To Alisson’s Amazing Winner

Liverpool fans are still reeling from Alisson's last-minute heroics against West Brom, but midfielder Gini Wijnaldum seemed to take it all calmly in his stride on the pitch.

The Reds' Premier League match, a vital one in their fight for a top-four spot, looked to be heading for a 1-1 draw on Sunday. Until Alisson came up for a 94th-minute header and rose to thump it past Sam Johnstone into the net.

The reaction of the overjoyed Liverpool players was to instantly swarm the goalkeeper. Except for Wijnaldum, who began to walk over to the huddle, before breaking into a slow jog.

Rather than just attributing to this to the Dutchman's easygoing nature, some LFC fans on Twitter have said the leisurely reaction is proof that he "doesn't care about the club one bit".

The 30-year-old's contract with Liverpool expires in the summer and it's widely believed that he's likely to leave Anfield rather than sign a new deal, with Barcelona regularly linked to the player.

The fact that Wijnaldum looks set to leave Liverpool in a few months, coupled with his chilled reaction to Alisson's dramatic late goal, have had some Liverpool supporters questioning his desire.

Wijnaldum has been a big part of Liverpool's success in the last five years. He scored two of the goals in Liverpool's famous 4-0 Champions League semi-final second leg win at Anfield, which put the Reds into the 2019 final. He also started in the 2-0 win over Tottenham that followed.

Other Liverpool fans defended the player, who came on in the West Brom game as a late substitute, while Wijnaldum himself tweeted his congrats to Alisson post-match.

But many supporters are questioning Wijnaldum's place in the squad for the last two games of this season, as Liverpool have struggled and it becomes increasingly clear he is set to leave the club this summer.
