Jamie Carragher plays down Georginio Wijnaldum claims that he felt disrespected by minority of Liverpool fans before his exit for Paris Saint-Germain – ‘This is not right’

Jamie Carragher has responded after Georginio Wijnaldum revealed he felt disrespected by a small section of Liverpool’s support on social media in his last two years at the club.

Wijnaldum, who spent five years at Anfield following his £25million move from Newcastle in 2016, turned down the offer of a new contract and subsequently joined Paris Saint-Germain this summer on a free transfer.

The Netherlands star has now spoken about his exit and revealed he was affected by trolls on social media during the last two years

Wijnaldum told The Times: “Every day in training and in the game I gave everything.

“Liverpool meant so much to me. There was some moment when I didn’t feel love and appreciated there.

“Not by my teammates, not the people at Melwood. I know they all loved me and I loved them. It was not from that side, more from the other side.

Carragher did not agree with Wijnaldum’s comments

“There was a moment when I didn’t feel loved. In the last two seasons, I had it a few times.

“The media didn’t help. There was a story like I didn’t accept the [Liverpool] offer because I wanted more money, and the fans made it like ‘OK, he didn’t get the offer so he doesn’t try his best to win games.’ Everything looked like it was against me.

“Some moments it was like, ‘Wow, me again?’”

Carragher, however, has played down his comments and insisted Wijnaldum’s decision to leave is simply because he wanted more money.

He wrote: “I love Gini but this is not right, social media is a circus & every club has clowns. Turn off your notifications & if it’s bothering you that much delete the app! He wanted more money the club said no, that’s football!”

Wijnaldum scored 22 goals in 237 appearances for the Reds in his five years at the club.
