Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum: Champions League win my best moment

Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum admits winning the Champions League last year was his best career moment.

In a fans Q&A, Wijnaldum was asked about his greatest moments as a footballer with last year's Champions League success topping the list.

He said: "Of course it's winning the Champions League with Liverpool. It's a really big prize I had wanted to win for so many years. But also - spending time with my teammates, the technical staff, the medical staff, the people who work at Melwood.

"Everything together makes it a really, really good experience to play for Liverpool.

"It was a really crazy feeling [scoring the goals in the semi-final vs Barcelona]. It was even more special after the game.

"During the game you are full of adrenaline. You don't realise what you have done.

"When I came into the dressing room and even when I drove home, I still didn't realise what just happened.

"But that was one of the best moments in my career so far. The feeling is difficult to explain.

"It's something you have to feel yourself. Even now I can't believe what happened!"
