Georginio Wijnaldum injury update: ex-Liverpool ace to have tibia surgery Monday

Former Liverpool FC midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum left the Merseyside club at the beginning of last season for PSG but couldn’t play better due to some injury and other issues and this season, he joined AS Roma with a view to experience a new dimension of soccer in Italy.

Nonetheless, the Georginio Wijnaldum injury update came as a shock for the Roma fans during Sunday’s internal training session ahead of a crucial Serie A match against newly debutant U.S. Cremonese.

What is the latest news on Georginio Wijnaldum injury update?

Roma have been faced a huge injury blow less than one match into the season, with Georginio Wijnaldum suffering a fractured tibia during Sunday’s training session and after colliding with young attacker Felix Afena-Gyan in the final portion of weekend’s session, the Dutchman underwent scans ahead of Monday’s league match against Cremonese.

The crucial medical examination discovered a small fracture in the midfielder’s right tibia which is not a serious injury, but one that will take some time to heal automatically, however, in order to expedite his recovery, Wijnaldum has chosen to have surgery today (Monday) at Villa Stuart hospital in Rome, according to Il Tempo.

Gini Wijnaldum

This veteran Dutch player is very optimistic about FIFA World Cup and he does not want to miss the upcoming World Cup and hopes to be back on the field with Roma by the new year.

The Georginio Wijnaldum injury update also indicated that Jose Mourinho might have to re-think about building a solid defensive line-up due to the absence of Gini Wijnaldum.

Mourinho’s team will now be forced to play without him for months, and we will almost certainly see him again in 2023, after the World Cup but it is unclear whether the club will replace him in the final ten days of the transfer window, with a final decision expected in the coming days.
