Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum: Don't worry about tough Champions League group

Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum insists they can handle their tough Champions League group.

The Reds have been placed in an eye-catching Group C alongside French champions Paris Saint-Germain, Serie A outfit Napoli and Serbian title winners Red Star Belgrade.

Asked if he was happy with the draw, the Dutchman said: “Yes. Is there another group easier?

“I don't know why everyone was like: 'Oh, tough group'. I think every group is tough.

“We know that Paris Saint-Germain is a good team, we played Napoli already in the pre-season and we won 5-0.

“But we still know they are a good team and there were situations in that game where there was stuff to deal with."
