Wijnaldum insists Liverpool will handle busy schedule

Gini Wijnaldum says Liverpool will handle their upcoming schedule.

The Reds will play their first Champions League clash Napoli at Stadio San Paolo this Tuesday, with clashes with Chelsea, MK Dons, Sheffield United, Salzburg and Leicester City afterwards.

"You already know before the season that you're going to play in a lot of competitions and that you need a squad that is fit and big because you need everyone," Wijnaldum told liverpoolfc.com.

"Not every player can play all of the games so we knew it before, but I think we have to embrace it because it means that you play for a lot of prizes. We're just trying to enjoy it and play football."
