Why Xherdan Shaqiri Didn't Travel To Belgrade With Liverpool

Shaqiri I'm a Champions League winner I deserve respect at Liverpool

Shaqiri I'm a Champions League winner I deserve respect at Liverpool

Shaqiri comes from an ethnic Albanian family from Kosovo, a former Serbian province. Politics always has always influence on life, on the life I live at least, and that's how it is.

"There were a few of us new to the Champions League last season and we gained invaluable experience by going the distance and just falling short, but we feel we have taken that into this season already". We tried to make sure we can be focused on football.

"The player has accepted it".

"We are Liverpool FC, a big club, a football team but we don't have any message further than that", Klopp said.

Asked if they could not afford to drop points away to the group underdogs, Klopp said there would still be everything to play for whatever happens at Red Star's Rajko Mitic stadium. "That's all. Xherdan will play a lot of games for this club in future but not tomorrow".

Jurgen Klopp's side now sit top of Group C and go into the Belgrade clash as heavy favourites having comfortably dispatched Red Star at Anfield recently.

"For the club, Belgrade, Serbia and the whole region tomorrow is an important occasion, and we are looking forward to a spectacle".

High school marching band spells out racist word during football game
But four students chose letters to spell out C-O-O-N and displayed the racial slur on the field for all to see. He says the band director wasn't on the field with performers that night so rules weren't followed.

"Liverpool are a favourite, no matter what".

"We need to cool the situation down".

The full Liverpool squad to face the Serbian SuperLiga side: Fabinho, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Lovren, Milner, Keita, Firmino, Mane, Salah, Gomez, Alisson, Sturridge, Moreno, Lallana, Mignolet, Robertson, Origi, Solanke, Matip, Kelleher, Alexander-Arnold.

Red Star Belgrade are without a win in their past five games in European competition (D3 L2), conceding 10 goals in losing the past two (1-6 v Paris St-Germain and 0-4 v Liverpool).

Jurgen Klopp's side now top the group with Napoli and PSG battling to keep pace with the Premier League side. Red Star have one point.

"I think in the game at Anfield (a 4-0 win) we scored at the right times and we were at 100 per cent". When you look at Shaqiri, the rest of them aren't like how he is.

Daniel Sturridge may be hoping for a recall as Roberto Firmino has been in poor of late but I think Klopp will stick with the Brazilian global up front tomorrow night.
