The Swiss head coach Vladimir Petkovic rejected Jürgen Klopp’s claim in November that Xherdan Shaqiri was injured in international service.
Creative striker Shaqiri didn’t return to the Liverpool league until Sunday after a thigh problem. In fact, he had missed his club’s last 10 games in all competitions.
Klopp announced in November that the 29-year-old had suffered a « minor muscle injury » while away from his country.
Also, Liverpool didn’t discover the injury until he was training with his club. After experiencing a problem, Klopp said a follow-up scan showed a problem « five or six days ago ». .
« He wasn’t injured with us, he was training normally with us when the game in Ukraine was canceled, » he said.
« He hadn’t felt anything to us, only during training in Liverpool. If you have had a lot of injuries, you also have a lot of scars and the muscle is no longer as elastic as it used to be.
« He’s working extremely hard on it. I firmly believe that he can bring a lot to Liverpool.
« I would have liked it better if the club had reported to the Nati doctor. Instead of expressing yourself publicly. ”
Shaqiri has seen mixed form since moving to Anfield in the summer of 2018. In his debut season, the Swiss made six goals and three assists in 24 Premier League games.
Last season he just earned a top medal with seven appearances. Indeed, he fought injuries again but failed to make a strong impression.
Before his final injury, however, he was in fantastic shape and added another dimension to Klopp’s attack.
Erling Haaland has since said that Virgil van Dijk is one of the top three defenders in the world.
The Dutch central defender has not played since mid-October after a serious knee injury. In fact, it remains unclear how long it will remain on the sidelines.
Nevertheless, Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland appreciates the 29-year-old very much for his influence on Klopp’s team.
