Georginio Wijnaldum insists it would be a bit disappointing for him if Jurgen Klopp doesn’t select him in the Champions League final.

Liverpool are scheduled to face Tottenham Hotspur in the most anticipated game of this season and will try to rectify their last year’s mistake when they were humiliated by a superior Real Madrid.

Klopp’s side had almost laid their hands on the Premier League title but Manchester City’s exemplary form saw them retaining their title this time.

Wijnaldum wasn’t included in the starting lineup against Barcelona in the semifinal second leg but was instrumental in changing the course of the game.

The Dutch midfielder said, “There is no guarantee that you will play but we will see.

“I was angry (to not start against Barcelona) but I think that is normal. It’s a bad sign if you are happy to sit on the bench. (The expectation being) if you come back from an injury and you are coming back step-by-step.

“I just want to play as much as possible, especially in a game like (the final). I think everyone would be disappointed if they don’t play.

“I was disappointed but in the end you play as a team.

“We have a team which supports each other, you do your job and try to help the team win games.

“When I came in I gave it my all and then we will see what will happen.”
