Jurgen Klopp provides worrying injury update on Xherdan Shaqiri

Posted on February 29, 2020  in Stoke

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Xherdan Shaqiri has yet to overcome his persistent calf issues and he is unlikely to make a comeback in the near future. The Switzerland international has not featured for the club since January 11 and Klopp is unsure over a possible return date for the attacker.

In a report covered by the club’s official website, Klopp said that Shaqiri is nowhere close to training with the first-team squad and he cannot put any timeframe for him to return to first-team action, he told: “Not close to team training yet. We never did, but this time for sure we cannot, put any time pressure on it because it is obviously a difficult one. It was never a big one but always big enough to keep him out for another two or three weeks. So, we just wait. He is not close to team training.”
