Klopp apologises to Shaqiri after realising how long it's been since he started!
Updated: Dec 7, 2019
It's been over 7 months since Xherdan Shaqiri was handed a Premier League start by Jurgen Klopp, something which was rectified last night.
But totally unsurprisingly, the manager hadn't even realised it until it was pointed out to him. Also unsurprisingly, he then apologised to Shaq for it!
Speaking to the official Liverpoolfc.com website, he said: "[Seven months] really? Sorry Shaq!
"He was injured a couple of times. If he could have scored two goals like Divock instead of one, I could say exactly the same [as I said about Origi].
"He looked completely fresh, he looked strong, physically strong, so it is important players train after they get injured.
"He had twice this calf thing this season, so there was not a lot to change but I think he has been back in training for two or three weeks now completely normal.
"He understood the situation, that’s how it is in a squad when you win a lot of games, you don’t make 20 changes."
The Switzerland star repaid his manager by scoring, and generally having an incredible game on his return to the starting line-up.
