Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to recent comments made by Xherdan Shaqiri about his future.
The former Stoke City winger has also suggested that he could leave the Reds in the summer transfer window, and has said that he is not happy at sitting on the substitutes’ bench.
The 27-year-old Switzerland international winger made 11 starts and 13 substitute appearances in the Premier League for Liverpool last season, scoring six goals and providing three assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
The former Bayern Munich and Inter Milan man played just 176 minutes in the Champions League for the Merseyside outfit last season, according to WhoScored.
Having yet to play in the league for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, Shaqiri is frustrated at his current situation, and Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to his comments.
Below are some of the best comments:
He deserve to be playing. Very good player.— Ãdãm Ūmãrr (@Umarradam85) August 18, 2019
Completely agree that if he couldn’t get on yesterday then he has no future at Liverpool. This is puzzling and a shame for shaq.— Rico Maurice (@ick1emonkey) August 18, 2019
Love Shaq and when more competitions come in I think he might get more playing time— Just a normal Liverpool fan (@4motionplays) August 18, 2019
Gone in January if it doesn’t improve— RockinRobin81 (@Robin81Rockin) August 18, 2019
In my opinion we should sell him. He would never be a starter and doesn't suit our system. And he would never be OK with being backup.— Macca74Swe (@LiverpoolFCse) August 18, 2019
Shaqiri is good enough for Liverpool, but we have too many poor players. We need to be more like Man City, with quality backup, and players need to recognise that.— It's a flattop, without the flat top! (@PaulMorris7777) August 18, 2019
He will be the one to lead us to Carling Cup victory this year. And once all 4 competitions are in full flow he will have a part to play for sure— Ghalib #YNWA (@ghalibtaimur) August 18, 2019
I would keep him tbh anyone else agree?— James Lovell (@James_Lovell06) August 18, 2019
Cant figure out what klopp is thinking when it comes to shaq. Really should've played him at some point yesterday.— Reza (@Reza_Gasant) August 18, 2019
So weird ... really good player— Anton Hysen (@hysenanton) August 18, 2019
He's a great player to have come off the bench and should be used more often for rotation, Klopp just doesn't seem to like him— Lawson (@ExpertlyHendo) August 18, 2019
Agree with him tbh .— Kop_world19 (@mersey_reds19) August 18, 2019
Why did he buy him if he not going to play him .
I love shaq and don’t want him to leave .
i rather play him than origi tbh— Vik (@LFCVik) August 18, 2019
I love Shaq but if he wants to leave next summer I can’t blame him.— Laurie (@LFCLaurie) August 18, 2019
He’s an impact player and should be seeing more of him so I understand if he’s frustrated.
