Despite his frustration at Liverpool, Shaqiri committed to stay
Swiss midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri admitted that this season has not been a good season individually. He rarely plays not only because of injury, but also because of coach Jurgen Klopp’s decision.
The German coach has always relied on the duet of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane on the front lines of the team. As a result, an injury only made the situation worse for the former Bayern Munich.
In total, he has only played 11 matches in all competitions this season, scoring only one goal of them.
This situation is certainly not conducive for Shaqiri, his future is questionable. According to the news, Liverpool is ready to release it with a tag of 25 million Pounds.
But Shaqiri still looks like he wants to stay longer at Anfield. He admitted that he was frustrated because he rarely played, but he also had a strong desire to survive.
“If you get injured or don’t play you will always feel frustrated. But I look forward to this season and try to help the team all the time, so that I can have the opportunity to perform like in the first season, ”
“As a team, I just want to achieve a lot. “I think we have a lot of good players in this team, everyone can play and we will try to make the coach difficult as usual,” Shaqiri told the club’s official website.
For the former Stoke City player, the most important thing is to try to do his best and help the club win titles.
“I also try to give my best and help the team to win, titles – that’s the most important thing for me.”
Liverpool managed to finish this season’s journey by winning the Premier League title. Shaqiri is also enthusiastic about the opportunity for the Marseyside team to defend the title next season, although of course it’s not easy.
“Everyone can’t wait to play again and want to defend the Premier League title, also win more trophies. It will be very difficult, but we are trying to achieve many more things and we want to win a lot, “he concluded.
Meanwhile, Liverpool is currently in Austria for the pre-season session.
