Gini Wijnaldum And Moussa Sissoko Have Gone From Relegation To Champions League Finalists In Three Years

Gini Wijnaldum And Moussa Sissoko Have Gone From Relegation To Champions League Finalists In Three Years

Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool will play out the first all-English Champions League final since Chelsea and Manchester United in 2008 but the most important aspect of the spectacle on June 1 is the fact we will see Gini Wijnaldum and Moussa Sissoko do battle on the grandest stage of all.

Back in 2015/16, the pair were part of the Newcastle side that finished 18th in the Premier League and were relegated to the Championship.

Fast forward three years and the former teammates will line up against one another at the Wanda Metropolitano in the biggest game in club football after Liverpool and Spurs produced sensational semi-final second leg comebacks back-to-back.

Even though the pair were far too good to go down, it's still pretty mad that what a difference a few years makes.

What's more, three years ago Andy Robertson was playing Championship football with Hull City and Xherdan Shaqiri was turning out for Stoke City under Mark Hughes.

Funny old game, isn't it?
