Wijnaldum reveals Liverpool free role, but...

Gini Wijnaldum admits he enjoys a free midfield role under Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

But the Dutch ace admits he's been told to play a holding role if Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson bomb forward.

"He doesn't really give a lot of jobs to players," Wijnaldum told Liverpool's official website.

"He tells me to be free and play how I can play. But sometimes it is different.

"It depends on what the other players are doing. You have to look at the other players. For example, if Lallana goes forward and Henderson also goes, I have to stay.

"Sometimes I have to get used to it because, normally, I'm the one who goes all the time."
