Klopp might drop Liverpool star for Red Star game after public declaration

Liverpool ace Shaqiri: Forget Stoke relegation - I'm a Champions League winner

Liverpool ace Shaqiri: Forget Stoke relegation - I'm a Champions League winner

"Being relegated with Stoke was a very bad experience for the club and for me and I hope they can come back quickly", Shaqiri told the Mirror .

He's proven this season that he can change games when given the chance, and a fixture against the weakest team in the group would give Klopp the chance to rest and rotate before the next round of Premier League fixtures.

Liverpool comprehensively defeated Red Star in the reverse fixture at Anfield and will be keen to maintain their push for qualification to the Champions League knockout rounds.

His first Liverpool FC goal came in a 4-1 win over Cardiff City in the Premier League last weekend just days after his man of the match performance in a 4-0 win over Red Star in Europe.

"I think I am settled now and showing my best form". "It takes time for me to understand what the coach wants and also for my team-mates to understand me".

"He's impressed me more than I thought he would with that, but I think it's been good for him to work under Jurgen Klopp".

But Edgley, then at the Isle of Skye, knew the record would only stand if he completed his journey to Margate. He was accompanied by Cornish sailor Matthew Knight, supporting from his catamaran Hecate.

And so when the Powercube scored, performed his eagle celebration and wore boots with the Kosova flag embroidered into them, this all got a little much for Serbs. This was what I wanted. I have my dreams to win things with Liverpool.

He was disciplined for making a political statement when Switzerland faced Serbia in the World Cup in Russian Federation earlier this year, after he celebrated a goal by making an eagle gesture in tribute to his Albanian heritage. Shaqiri was born in the former Yugoslav city of Gjilan, which is now part of Kosovo, whose declaration of independence in 2008 has not been recognised by Serbia.

"When I go back to Munich, the fans show me that I am loved".

"I had this already at the World Cup so I know I can handle this no problem". "It is not about politics it is about football".

Liverpool now top Group C at the halfway stage with six points from three matches, ahead of Napoli on five points, and PSG on four points, whereas Red Star are rock-bottom and winless.
