Shaqiri injury blow forces Liverpool forward rethink
It wasn't what Jurgen Klopp or his staff will have wanted, but an injury blow to Xherdan Shaqiri, who had previously limped out of Switzerland's game back in early June.
The Swiss star returned to training with Divock Origi yesterday but has returned with an injury and after being looked at by the medical staff faces some time out yet.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has since confirmed the injury to Liverpoolfc.com, saying:
"Shaq is still injured from the national team and it will take a while until he is in again.
"He has a tear in his calf, so he will not be involved for a while."
Not only is it a blow for the first-team squad, but for the player himself who would've been looking to jump in ahead of the likes of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane who won't return for a few more weeks.
But it looks now as if the team will be having to rely on the likes of Rhian Brewster, Ben Woodburn and Harry Wilson to get us through the early friendly games.
