Former Premier League striker Nigel Jemson is not surprised that Xherdan Shaqiri has left Liverpool this summer.
The winger has moved to French club Lyon for a fee of £9.5m, signing a three-year contract with the Ligue 1 outfit.
How would you rate Xherdan Shaqiri's Liverpool career out of ten?
Indeed, the Switzerland international made a total of 63 appearances for the club, but during his time at Anfield, he made just 18 Premier League starts.
Jemson is a Liverpool fan and is unsurprised that the 29-year-old has been allowed to leave the club as he seeks first-team minutes elsewhere.
His move comes after the diminutive winger impressed at Euro 2020, playing in five games as the Swiss reached the quarter-finals, knocking out France on the way. He scored three times, including a goal in the last eight penalty shootout defeat to Spain.
Jemson said: “Well it doesn’t surprise me that he’s been looking to go. He’s been there now for quite a while, and he’s never been a regular.
“He’s also been to the Euros in the summer and I thought he did very well, actually, for Switzerland. But he needs, probably, to move on. He’s not getting any younger.”
