Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum chats a load of sh*t. Quite literally.
Wijnaldum started Liverpool’s 5-0 victory over Watford on Saturday, having not started any game in all competitions for over a month.
The midfielder was sidelined with a virus, the details of which he is rather too keen to divulge.
“I was hit by a violent infection which caused me to lose weight,” Wijnaldum told De Telegraaf.
“I woke up one night and suffered from diarrhoea. The next morning I called the doctor who asked me if I could come to the club. There I was again bothered by my stomach and the doctor immediately sent me away. He was afraid that I would infect other players.
“It lasted for two weeks. After five days blood had already been taken from me, but it did not show what was there. Only after my faeces was examined did bacteria appear.
“Antibiotics made me sicker but then it got better. I’ve had to work on my fitness again. I have trained hard but on Saturday I noticed that I need rhythm for the way I want to play. It’s going better but I’m not as fit as before I got sick.”
