Shaqiri asks not to be selected for Switzerland to concentrate on Liverpool
If you previously had any doubts about Xherdan Shaqiri's commitment to the LFC cause then after the news today about his international future decision, you may have to rethink,
The Swiss winger is hugely popular among Liverpool fans, after his antic last season, particularly following the brace against Man Utd which won us that game at Anfield.
But he has found his game time fairly limited for the second half of last season, into the start of this season. And considering he's probably our most dangerous forward player outside the front three, it is particularly confusing.
So in an attempt to force his way into the starting eleven, and concentrate on doing just that, Shaqiri has requested that he not be considered for international duty for the next month.
The news was announced via a Tweet from the official Swiss national team account, saying that the player wanted to concentrate on playing for Liverpool this month.
