New Liverpool Star Opens Up On The Furious Side Of Jurgen Klopp


Reds’ midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri has revealed the truth about his manager Jurgen Klopp when things aren’t going well for Liverpool.

Liverpool extended their unbeaten streak in the Premier League this season to nine games after a 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith Stadium on Saturday. A Mohamed Salah goal in the first half of the game was enough to allow Liverpool all the three points from their travel against the Terriers.

But it was a far from a fluent performance from Liverpool, who are yet to hit their high form which we saw towards the end of last season. It was a scrappy game which saw Liverpool manager furious and very animated on the touchline. And Shaqiri who arrived from Stoke City to Liverpool on a £12 million deal in the summer has explained as to why his manager was behaving in such a manner throughout the game.

Shaqiri On Klopp-

Speaking in a post-match interview after the Huddersfield game, the Swiss international winger, who set up Salah’s goal with a lovely weighted pass, said that Klopp is a manager who wants to see his team always give 100% on the pitch, “Of course, he is very emotional. He wants the best from you and always that you give 100 per-cent.  If he sees something that is not 100 per-cent normal then he will shout – and he did! That’s normal.”
The 27-year-old also added and understood that it wasn’t the best performance but he was still proud that his side kept a clean sheet, “Everything was not perfect like he wanted it to be. In the end, we won the game and that was the most important thing. Of course, we have to analyze to see what was good and what was not good.  But I’m really proud that we had another clean sheet. That’s very positive.”
Author’s Take-
It’s great to see a new signing like Xherdan Shaqiri adapting to life at Liverpool and contributing for the win as well. He was really good on the night and Liverpool fans will hope that there are more positives to come from the highly rated winger.
