Liverpool’s season is reaching a ‘make or break’ stage.
Jurgen Klopp’s side face Bayern Munich on Tuesday in their Champions League last-16 first leg.
They then travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United, needing a point to put them back to the top of the Premier League.
With just 12 matches remaining in the league campaign, they will need all of their important players to step up and be counted.
Obviously, that includes the big names such as Alisson, Virgil van Dijk and the front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
But throughout the course of the campaign, there’s another player that has emerged as one of Liverpool’s most important players - Georginio Wijnaldum.
The Dutchman quietly goes about his business and, when he’s not in the side, he’s sorely missed.
But because he doesn’t really really score or assist regularly, he’s often overlooked.
But to ensure he gets the praise he deserves, Liverpool’s official Twitter account decided to upload an appreciation video of Wijnaldum’s best bits from this season.
Captioned “Gini is boss!” the 2:37 video has captured just how good Wijnaldum has been and has been retweeted more than 3,000 times and 'liked' by more than 20,000 followers.

Even his teammate and compatriot Van Dijk enjoyed the video and reacted on Twitter.
If you didn’t already realise how important Wijnaldum is to Liverpool, club legend Phil Thompson insisted that he “should be the first name on the team sheet” for Klopp.
"He’s one of the unsung heroes of this Liverpool side,” Thompson said of Wijnaldum, per the Liverpool Echo.
“I’ve told a lot of people… we had one player Ray Kennedy, fans were forever complaining about him, but we knew how good he was. Wijnaldum is the same and he should be the first name on the team sheet.
“He possesses great knowledge and awareness of where he is on the pitch. He’s a properly gifted player in more ways than the silky skills of the guys up front.”News Now - Sport News
