I think everybody actually has a truly downright terrible about it. At the point when we were talking with the fellows after Saturday, none of the players rested as a result of what occurred with Virgil and the manner in which it occurred. It is truly hard. A hard one to take for the group,” Wijnaldum said.

The manner in which he took the tackle, he couldn’t have cared less about what occurred after the tackle. I think we had it a great deal in games against Everton. My assessment is that they take it excessively far in the games we play against them,” Wijnaldum said.
“We realize it is a derby. Everyone needs to win that derby. Now and again you go a tad over the top and it was excessively. It was his tackle as well as on the off chance that we talk about the tackle from Richarlison on Thiago. It was additionally a frightful one. That is the thing that irritated me the most, and the greater part of different players. Mishaps can generally occur in football. You can be unfortunate.
