In an interview with the official FIFA media, Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum spoke about his international career with the Netherlands, especially during the 2014 and 2018 World Cups, but also on his start of the season at PSG. Asked about his first steps alongside Lionel Messi, the Dutchman with 83 caps (26 goals) wanted to highlight another teammate in the midfield

“Everyone says Messi and Ronaldo because they dominated the game for 15 years, and the third player is always different. When we talk about the best players in the world, people automatically say midfielders and attackers, but we also have great defenders. Virgil van Dijk is one of them. I now play with Verratti at PSG and he is phenomenal. People won't say that because his role isn't to score a lot of goals and get a lot of assists, but what he does in training and on the pitch is magnificent."
