Midfielder

A product of the Sparta Rotterdam youth academy in his hometown, the midfielder made a name for himself at two of the Netherlands’ biggest clubs, Feyenoord Rotterdam (135 matches, 25 goals) and PSV Eindhoven (154 matches, 56 goals), with whom he won the Eredivisie in 2015.

After a spell with Newcastle United, ‘Gini’ joined Liverpool in 2016, making 237 appearances in five seasons with the Reds. After playing a key role in Liverpool’s UEFA Champions League triumph in 2019, as well as lifting the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup, he also helped the club win their first league title in 30 years.

In the summer of 2021, the Dutch captain swapped the banks of the Mersey for the Seine with the aim of scaling the heights in Rouge et Bleu.
