Liverpool fans react to Xherdan Shaqiri injury update

Liverpool attacker Xherdan Shaqiri requires further assessment on an injury sustained during international duty, the club confirmed on Saturday.

The Switzerland international had to go off injured in a match against Portugal in early June, with the calf problem having not yet healed.

The Reds kicked off their pre-season preparations on Saturday but Shaqiri will not return to Melwood immediately.

His return has been delayed and he will be checked by the club’s medical team upon his return in the coming weeks.

The 27-year-old arrived at Anfield from Stoke City last summer and made 30 appearances across the season, scoring six goals and assisting five times.

However, he was primarily used as a substitute option, playing back-up to Jurgen Klopp’s elite attack that ran Manchester City so close in the Premier League and won the UEFA Champions League.

His injury setback has raised the issue of squad depth amongst Liverpool fans, with the club having made no signings so far this summer apart from teenage defender Sepp van den Berg.
