Charlie Adam hits out at Xherdan Shaqiri following Liverpool move

Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam has criticised former teammate Xherdan Shaqiri shortly after making the switch to Premier League side Liverpool. The Switzerland international had been one of the Potters’ most influential performers over the past three seasons but Adam has put the blame on the attacker following the Potters’ relegation to the Championship.

Speaking on TalkSPORT, Adams said that Shaqiri was one of the players, who failed to show up for the Potters last term after they were pushed into a relegation battle, he said: “Was he one of them? Oh, definitely.When the chips are down you look at your big players, you want your big players to bring magic in one moment in the season, and at times we felt like the so-called big players in the squad never turned up for us and never performed.Yeah, everybody else could help, but for all the plaudits to so-called bigger players we getting from certain members of the management staff last season - they weren't producing.”
