Jurgen Klopp Vital To Me Joining Liverpool – Xherdan Shaqiri

share on:

Xherdan Shaqiri says Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp played a key role in his move to Anfield from Stoke this summer.

“When I heard the club wanted me I wanted to come because I’ve known him a long time. I’ve admired him for a long time and I am really happy to be here,” he said.

“Jurgen Klopp is a great person and a great character with a winning mentality and that’s the most important thing.”

Xherdan Shaqiri knows he faces a battle to command a regular starting role in Jurgen Klopp’s side this season and is keen to get started.

When asked if he could feature against United, he told Liverpoolfc.com: “I hope so, yes. I don’t know yet.

“I need a few training sessions and then I hope I can get some minutes against Manchester United. I feel good.

Of course, on the first day after one session you are always a little tired but I feel good.

“I didn’t lose a lot because I only had two-and-a-half weeks’ holiday. So I feel good and ready to go.”
