Xherdan Shaqiri hits back at criticism from Gary and Phil Neville

"I think my record speaks for itself".

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Shaqiri said: "I hope I can repeat that because I know how it feels to win the Champions League [with Bayern Munich]". I'm here to be successful with my team.

But Klopp's charges could not cap off their European run with a sixth club triumph as they fell 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev, the Spanish club securing the trophy for a third successive season and for the fourth time in five years. "When someone like him becomes available in this way you have to react if you are smart - and we have", the manager told Liverpoolfc.com.

"We are a big team, there are big players here and everyone is going to fight for his place, but in the end we have to be successful as a team". But the added bonus now is that he knows the Premier League and what it takes to perform in this uniquely intense environment. I don't listen to what other people say'.

"I am really happy to be here finally", says Shaqiri, who joined his new teammates for the first time in New Jersey on Tuesday.

North Korea still making nuclear material: Pompeo
Pompeo responded and said at one point, "I saw the glee on your side walking away, trying to make a political point from that". Cory Gardner, R-Colorado, Pompeo said again that the North Koreans were continuing to produce fissile material.

And speaking about the upcoming campaign, the Switzerland worldwide has detailed his desire to help the club win silverware, with Liverpool having come up short in four different finals since their last win in the League Cup in 2012. I know what it takes. I am really happy to have this opportunity. You can see the coach wants to go forward with the players he brought in, very good quality players who can help the team. I hope this season we can go through and improve the small things that we need. "I hope he can do the same again this year".

And following a short break after his World Cup campaign, Shaqiri has now linked up with his new teammates ahead of the 2018/19 season. After scoring a late victor against Serbia the winger, a Kosovan-Albanian, celebrated by making the eagle symbol of Albania with his hands, earning a £7,600 fine by Federation Internationale de Football Association for a political gesture.

Shaqiri will inevitably come under scrutiny after facing criticism - notably from former team-mate Charlie Adam - for his attitude and commitment last season, which ended with Stoke getting relegated. "It was a very emotional game for everybody, that's all I can say", he carefully reflects.

He is clearly thrilled to be back in the big time with Liverpool, especially as four years ago Bayern Munich rebuffed Brendan Rodgers' attempt to sign him. It is important for me to work with him and with people who communicate well with good character. "Maybe I can train for the next few days and hopefully play against Man United on Saturday".
