Liverpool fans on Twitter aren’t worried about Shaqiri despite recent talk

The last thing that Liverpool need is an off-field issue that may threaten to derail their season after all the good work they’ve put in. However, there is one issue threatening to do just that and it surrounds Xherdan Shaqiri and his lack of minutes, an issue that even Ian Wright has been talking about on Five Live, which you can read in The Mirror.

Whilst the current Shaqiri debacle isn’t something being widely spoken about at the moment, it could still be an underlying issue for the Reds, much like the departure of Zeljko Buvac last season may have hindered the Anfield side. However, this time around, the fans aren’t quite as worried, as the recent news that their 27-year-old versatile attacker has pulled out of the Swiss squad through injury has made them think an injury is why he’s not featured.

The last time that Shaqiri actually started a game of football for Jurgen Klopp was well over a month ago, as he played just under 70 minutes in the Red’s 1-1 draw with Leicester. Since that game, though, the ex-Bayern Munich man has managed just 39 minutes in seven games, failing to make it onto the pitch in five of those. Regardless of that, though, the Kopites are refusing to worry and have faith in Shaqiri being back in action soon enough.

The Reds are refusing to let this Shaqiri talk become an issue and will only take note if the problem continues after the international break.
