Gini Wijnaldum has not completed a full 90 minutes for PSG in over two months, and the former Liverpool midfielder has now been dropped by the Netherlands.

He also captained the Netherlands in the absence of Virgil van Dijk, but over the past year their fortunes have changed dramatically – so much so that Louis van Gaal has now been forced to drop Wijnaldum.

“Unfortunately, little has changed in Gini’s situation at his club since our last two international matches in March,” Van Gaal explained.

Despite being left out of Van Gaal’s squad, it is likely to be a busy summer for Wijnaldum, with a departure from PSG to be expected.

So far this season, Wijnaldum has only played 1,914 minutes, averaging just 53.2 minutes on the pitch across his 36 appearances in all competitions.

That means Van Dijk will depart for international duty straight after the Champions League final on May 28, with the centre-back then due a short break before reconvening with Liverpool for pre-season.

“As a result, I am forced to make other choices, no matter how difficult and regrettable I personally find it.” The Netherlands will play four times in June, with Van Dijk called into the preliminary squad to face Belgium (June 3), Wales (June 8), Poland (June 11) and Wales again (June 14) in the UEFA Nations League.
