Georgino Wijnaldum has revealed that he scored a goal against Wolves in honour of Virgil van Dijk.
Wijnaldum scored in the 58th minute of the Wolves clash, getting back on the scoresheet as instructed by his injured teammate Van Dijk.
“I already said that every goal I score this year I will dedicate to him because we all miss him,” the Reds midfielder told the club’s official website.
“It was great to have him back. He said to me in the dressing room, ‘I want to see something today, I want a goal’ so I said: ‘No problem!’”
“It was a really good thing that the fans were back in the stadium,” he added.
“It’s a moment that we looked forward to for a really long time, so from the first moment when we heard that fans were allowed in the stadium we were already excited that we could play again with the fans.
“It was good to have them back, it was good to give them a 4-0 win and a good performance.
“They were really supportive of us and that’s also something that we need. Everyone knows that the fans and the crowd in Anfield is really vital for the team and can give the team an extra boost and that’s what they did.
“I think it was 2,000 fans but the noise they made was unbelievable for 2,000 people. So it was a good day.”
