VIDEO: Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum films fan sending tweet about being on the same flight as player

Was sat in front of the international midfielder.


Liverpool man Georginio Wijnaldum shared a clip of a fan tweeting that he was on the same flight as the midfielder, who was seated behind him.

The man was “99% sure” he had recognised 28-year-old Wijnaldum ahead of takeoff and immediately got his phone out to tweet about it.

Apparently failing to realise he was sat in the row directly in front of the Netherlands international, the player was able to get a video of the tweet being written and uploaded it to Instagram.

This is the message that was composed and sent out by the supporter on the easyJet plane:


The flight landed safely and the pair did eventually communicate.

A picture of them both together later appeared on the same Twitter account:


Feyenoord fan Ben told BBC Sport:

I saw he caught me just before we took off and we had a laugh about it.

When we got off I showed him my Twitter mentions exploding and he was laughing.
