Liverpool stars Wijnaldum and Lovren reply to Shaqiri’s Instagram snap

Xherdan Shaqiri is still one of the new faces at Liverpool.

The 27-year-old winger joined last year from Stoke and had a modest opening campaign.

In a total of 30 games across all competitions, Shaqiri managed to bag six goals and add five assists to his tally, which was a decent return considering he was often used as an impact substitute.

He also finished it strongly despite being on the bench in the Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur.

However, he suffered a setback on international duty.

A calf injury in June meant that he could only recently rejoin the rest of the squad on the training grounds but he is now making promising progress in his recovery.

Shaqiri took to Instagram to celebrate his return to the squad as he accompanied his teammates in Geneva, where the Reds won their game against Lyon.

Some of his teammates were quick to reply and welcome him back into the grind.

Dejan Lovren and Georginio Wijnaldum were among the first ones to send their best wishes and message to the returning Red.

Now that the pre-season friendlies for Liverpool are all done, they will gear up for the Community Shield game against Manchester City.
