Jurgen Klopp admits that he made a mistake with the departure of Xherdan Shaqiri

Xherdan Shaqiri, after several months in the shadows, has returned to be in the spotlight.

The Albanian striker, Shaqiri scored a beautiful goal in the Carabao Cup last night in Liverpool’s 7-2 victory against Lincoln City.

He was substituted in the 75th minute. Klopp decided to include Naby Keita in the game. But admitted that he made a mistake, he had to let him play the whole match.

“He [Shaqiri] made a super match.” said Klopp.

“A good performance in a position not quite unknown. But a little deeper in midfield – he did really, really well.”

“It was my fault [he was replaced] – I was afraid he twisted his ankle a bit, but he was completely fine, it was absolutely nothing – he just touched him twice, but I thought it was okay to remove him then” .

“But he played a really, really good game. He did the job miraculously, especially the free kick he scored, what a goal it was!”

“There is no doubt about Shaqi’s quality – there has never been.” he added.

“At the moment everything looks really good and looks really promising, so we’ll see.”
