Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has asked fans to support the team rather than focusing on his contract situation.

Wijnaldum is out of contract at the end of the season and has not yet reached an agreement over extending it beyond the summer.

He has also been linked with a reunion with Koeman at FC Barcelona, with the midfielder having previously worked with him at the Netherlands national team.

Speaking after Liverpool fell to their sixth consecutive home defeat, Wijnaldum said there are no updates on his contract situation and insisted the most important thing now is to fix the team's problems and get the results.

"If you’re a fan and you support the team - you support the player and what they do with me," Wijnaldum told beIN Sports [via Goal].

"You want to hear what’s going to happen but on the other side, for me, if there’s nothing to say and no news I cannot say something.

"I hope they can understand that and I hope they will stay patient until there’s news.

"The most important thing right now is that we fix things in the game as a team and we get results.

"Talking about an individual, in this case about me and my contract situation - because I just said there’s no news, I think we can focus on better things than on my situation.

"When there is news, we will bring it out."

Meanwhile, Liverpool face RB Leipzig in the Champions League round-of-16 second leg in their next match and will be hoping to progress to the quarter finals, having won the first leg 2-0.
