Wijnaldum hoping for forgiveness
The 20-year-old midfielder made the move to PSV last week, one year
before his contract with the Rotterdam club was due to expire.
Wijnaldum has since faced criticism from Feyenoord fans, who wanted
to see him move overseas instead of remaining in Holland. And the
midfielder has asked for understanding over his decision. “A lot
has been said to me,” he told AD Sportwereld. “I understand this
transfer feels like a betrayal, really I do. For those people I am
a child of Feyenoord. “I’ve played in the first team since I was 16
and the club have always been good to me. And in bad times, I
received everyone’s support. “I just hope that in time it will die
down and I will soon be able to walk through my city (Rotterdam).
“And I have thought about Feyenoord with this transfer. The club
earned five million euros for me and I did not want to leave them
on a free transfer next summer. “This way I can give something back
to the club, who are like family to me.”
