Shaqiri withdrawn from Swiss squad with injury
While Guardiola is withdrawing players left and right from international squads, Liverpool always seem to do the decent thing and let their players play for their countries. Even when they've had a niggling injury, like Jordan Henderson.
It usually isn't long after that the first of a handful of injuries come in, and Xherdan Shaqiri is the first of those on this occasion. The Swiss superstar has withdrawn due to a groin injury.
According to rumour, the winger has been struggling with a niggling injury for a few weeks, hence Jurgen's reticence to risk him, and his withdrawal from the Swiss squad could be a great move for the next run of Liverpool matches in April.
The summer signing had impressed during his first 5-6 months at Anfield but has rarely featured since the last weekend of January, but with Spurs coming to Anfield on 31st March, it'll give us almost 2 weeks to get him fit.
