Embarking on a new chapter of his career, Georginio Wijnaldum’s summer switch from Liverpool to Paris Saint-Germain seemed to be an ideal move for all parties.

The industrious and dynamic Dutchman should have, in theory, fitted seamlessly into Mauricio Pochettino’s system.

As it turns out, however, a dream move to a club seemingly destined to finally achieve Champions League glory has developed into a nightmare for the former Reds ace.

It’s important to note that there have been occasional Wijnaldum highlights in his short time at PSG. The brace against RB Leipzig that put the gloss on an admittedly brilliant individual European display; the assist for Kylian Mbappe’s match-winning strike against Bordeaux in November; the last-gasp headed equaliser that salvaged a point against Lens last month; and – oh no, wait, that’s it.

In the first half of his maiden campaign with the Parisian giants, Wijnaldum has, like the club as a whole, severely underwhelmed and looked utterly uncomfortable – despite playing around some of the finest footballers money (or free transfers) can acquire.
