Former Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman admits he was denied the chance to sign Georginio Wijnaldum for the La Liga giants when the Dutch international was still a Liverpool player, speaking to AD.

There surely cannot be many footballers who have had a more miserable 18 months than Gini Wijnaldum.

Barcelona would have signed Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool “I tried to sign Wijnaldum for Barca,” explains Koeman; sacked by the Catalan club 13 months ago.

The 31-year-old could be forgiven for wondering how differently things might have panned out, then, had he not been denied a reunion with his former Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman at the Camp Nou before embarking upon that disastrous spell in the French capital.

“I didn’t respond after my injury because I was really emotional and sad at the situation,” explains Wijnaldum, who has played just 36 minutes of football in Roma colours.
