It has also helped that Wijnaldum and Koeman worked together in the national camp as player and coach.
However, Wijnaldum has made light of the situation, although not dismissed it completely.
He said, “I don’t think it was that serious, otherwise you would have read a bit more, or more would have happened. There was nothing concrete, I didn’t have to think about it. I will stay on what it looks like now. It can of course change in the coming months, you never know that with football.”
