Wijnaldum: What I told Van Dijk about joining Liverpool...

Published on: 14 January 2018

Gini Wijnaldum has welcomed fellow Dutchman Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool.

The pair are good friends from their time together with the Dutch national team.

Wijnaldum told the Daily Mail: "He is an easy-going, relaxed person who gets along with everyone. But even I didn't realise he was this calm. That's a good thing given the amount of money spent on him and the pressure.

"We spoke a few times (about Liverpool). I told him how the club was and everything. I told him whatever decision you make just follow your heart.

"I'm not his guide here but if he asks me something I will help. I think I will be the first person he will ask because I'd Dutch, he's Dutch and we know each other very well."
