Liverpool fans in awe of how good Shaqiri is

Liverpool fans in awe of how good Shaqiri is

When Xherdan Shaqiri swapped the Brittania Stadium for Anfield, a lot of Liverpool fans were happy with the signing, although none were ecstatic. The Reds didn’t expect Shaqiri to become a starter and they didn’t expect him to play as well as he has been. He came off the bench against Cardiff yesterday and added to the scoresheet to again show his class.

Shaqiri has always been a quality player, however, in his time at both Bayern Munich and Inter Milan he didn’t have a manager who properly supported him and put their confidence in him. When he made the switch to Stoke City he became the main man and for a few seasons, he was the sole reason they survived. Now, though, at Liverpool, he’s able to show his true class and it’s just a matter of time until he’s undroppable in the starting eleven.

Shaqiri could easily make Liverpool’s front three a front four with his talents and when he came off the bench yesterday just after the hour mark to replace Adam Lallana it was clear to see that the players around him improved when his dynamism and spark came into play. The Swiss winger even added a goal after coming off the bench as his side cruised to a 4-1 win. The next game for The Kopites is against Arsenal and whilst Unai Emery will be preparing to nullify Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, Shaqiri could be Jurgen Klopp’s secret weapon.

The Reds are loving Shaqiri at the moment and will be keen to see him get more and more game time in the coming months.
