Gini Wijnaldum to start from the bench in Salernitana clash

Andy Mattioli

It has been a week since Gini WIjnaldum touched down in the Italian capital following an agreement between Paris Saint-Germain and Roma for the Dutchman’s transfer.

The ex-Liverpool man was smoothly integrated with rest of Jose Mourinho’s men and has been making steady progress in group training ahead of the season opener with Salernitana.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Wijnaldum is expected to start from the bench on Sunday. The player, despite having worked individually throughout the summer, lacks game time in his legs.

However, the Italian newspaper reports that the midfielder has impressed Mourinho in training, often being deemed one of the best in most group activities and is thus likely to feature in the second half to Salernitana-Roma.
