Klopp has also suggested that he knows that the 27-year-old winger is not very happy at his current situation.
Struggling for playing time
During the 2018-19 campaign, Shaqiri made 11 starts and 13 substitute appearances in the league for Liverpool, scoring six goals and providing three assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
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.
Klopp told Liverpool’s official website about Shaqiri: "Shaq is training well, that's the situation.
"It's the first four weeks of the season, that's how it is. That's probably the hardest period for players who are not [playing].”
The Liverpool boss added: "Is he the happiest player in the squad? I don't think so. Can I see that on the training pitch? No.
"He is in a good mood, training hard, doing what he has to do and is ready for the moment when he has to help the team on the pitch."
Liverpool are aiming to win the Premier League title and the Champions League this season, and the Reds need a big squad.
Shaqiri may not be a regular starter for the Reds, but the winger will be needed as the season progresses, and it is important that the Merseyside outfit hold onto him.
