Tiger Fighting on October 3 News Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum accepted an interview on Liverpool’s official website. He talked about the team’s good performance in the new season, the upcoming away game against Aston Villa and the UEFA Champions League group stage in the new season. .
"Because we have been together for a long time, everyone knows each other, just like we did in previous seasons."
"The only thing we do now is, because we have become a champion, you just want to work harder and win the championship again. We work as hard as before, maybe even harder, because we know we can’t do less. , We know how difficult it is to win games and play well on the court."
"We just did what we did last season, but we are more sharp and focused."
The team has not lost 6 games in regular time in the new season. Although it was eliminated by the Gunners after a penalty shootout in the League Cup, Wijnaldum is satisfied with the team's current results.
"Our current team is in very good condition. The situation we are currently in is very difficult, but we are still doing very well, so I am proud of it. I can find excuses for this, but we don't have it."
"We tried to have a good performance on the court. That's what we did. We had a good performance on the court and the results were good."
"I hope we can do the same in the game against Aston Villa, each of us has a good feeling in the team."
Last season Liverpool ended the 30-year wait for England’s top league champions. In the away game against Villa last season, with 4 minutes left in the game, Liverpool fell behind the opponent 0-1, Robertson equalized the score and then made up for injury. At this stage, Mane headed his opponent.
"The game last season was really tricky. We fell behind our opponents 0-1, and we finally beat our opponents with Robertson and Mane's successive goals. I think everyone who remembers that game will remember it and know where it is. How difficult it is to win the game."
"Now it may be different because the fans are not there, but Villa is still a difficult team to beat. It will be difficult, very difficult."
"We have to make sure that we are fully focused, 100% involved, do what we did last season and this season, and strive to play our best football."
In the new season's UEFA Champions League group stage Liverpool and Ajax, Atlanta and Central Jutland are in Group D.
As a former Feyenoord and PSV player, Wijnaldum is looking forward to playing against Ajax.
"Ajax is a team from the Netherlands. I also know a lot of players who play there. I play with some of their players in the Dutch national team. It's a good thing to be able to play with them."
"The playing style of the other three teams deserves respect. They deserve our respect. We will use 100% of our efforts to win the game and show our respect. This is definitely what they won, as I just said. Because of their good performance over the past few years and months."
