Bulgarian Magpies, the Newcastle United fan club in the Balkan nation, had a special moment with one of their former favourites recently.
Georginio Wijnaldum probably didn’t enjoy his time in Sofia much as Bulgaria pulled off an upset win over a disappointing Netherlands side but he did have a special surprise to cheer him up as local fans of the Magpies fondly greeted him.
Wijnaldum had joined the Magpies in 2015 from PSV and while he eventually left at the end of the season which saw them relegated, he remained a fan favourite during his time there, at least for his performances during the home games. That clearly showed in this marvellous gesture from these Bulgarian supporters – great stuff.
