GINI WIJNALDUM isn’t ‘completely happy’ at Paris Saint-Germain due to his lack of playing time.
The Dutch midfielder left Liverpool – where he won a Premier League and a Champions League – to join the Parisians on a free transfer.
He expected his new challenge in France to come with more game time.
But he’s only started six out of 11 appearances he has made for PSG this season.
Wijnaldum is currently away on international duty with Holland and he is expected to start in their World Cup Qualifier against Gibraltar.
In the build-up to Monday’s game, the Dutch vice-captain voiced his displeasure at his playing time at PSG, admitting its been ‘difficult’.
As quoted by NOS, the 30-year-old said: “I can’t say I’m completely happy.
“Because the situation is not what I wanted. But that’s football and I’ll have to learn to deal with that. I’m a fighter.

“I have to stay positive and work hard to turn it around.
“I have played a lot in recent years, was always fit and also did very well. This is something different and that takes getting used to.
“I was really looking forward to the new step and then this happens. It is very difficult.”
Holland boss Louis van Gaal is also worried about Wijnaldum’s lack of game time with the 2022 Qatar World Cup just around the corner.
But the former Manchester United boss insists ‘alarm bells are not going off yet’.
He said: “Of course I’m worried.
“I already talked to him about that when I arrived. But the alarm bells are not going off yet.”
