New Roma midfielder, Georgino Wijnaldum has come out to say that Mohamed Salah and Achraf Hakimi convinced him to join the club on loan. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he spoke to both African players ahead of his move to Roma, and they only had good stories to tell about the Italian club and how they treat players.
He added that despite playing for Inter Milan before joining PSG, Hakimi told him Roma is a beautiful place to play football.
His words, “I wanted to come because of the effort the club made to sign me and because I spoke to Salah and Kevin Strootman about the club and the city and I only heard good stories about it,”
“I also spoke to Hakimi, even if he played for Inter, he said that Roma is a beautiful club. That convinced me a lot also because I knew the club.
“We played once with Liverpool [at Roma] and the atmosphere was amazing, I knew I’d play for a club with beautiful supporters, it was the only thing that I knew.”
