Ferdinand professes his ‘love’ for the Liverpool star


Rio Ferdinand admits he is a big fan of Liverpool star Georginio Wijnaldum, whom he claims is undervalued.

Wijnaldum is in the final year of his contract at Anfield and had been constantly connected with movement to other European clubs and is free to negotiate with suitors in January.

But Klopp has claimed that the Dutch are a a vital part of the club’s future and Ferdinand believes the 30-year-old is an underweight entity in Liverpool’s midfield.

“I have to be honest: I love this player,” Ferdinand said BT Sport.

“He is very selfless, his intelligence, he has completely underachieved because he can play every midfield position in that central area.

“He plays the No. 10 role for Holland, the way he defends here [for Liverpool].

“We get players you play with in your career that fans probably don’t value as much.

“Because on the field you know how much work they get, how valuable they are.”
