Xherdan Shaqiri eyeing trophy success with Liverpool

Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri is aiming to winning trophies with Liverpool having joined them from Stoke City earlier in the summer. The attacker had made his mind up to leave the Potters following their top-flight relegation last term and Jurgen Klopp thereafter managed to pounce on his services after his impressive display at the World Cup.

Speaking to reporters, Shaqiri has now suggested his ambition to win regular silverware with the Reds and believes the club are more than capable of doing so after showcasing their dominance over Manchester City last season, he said: “For me, nothing is impossible. We can be everything we want to be. We beat Manchester City in the league and the Champions League last season so I think we can beat anyone in the world. It has to be our ambition to compete with the best and to go on the field against whoever we play trying to win the game and dominate the game. Our aim is to win as many titles as possible. That is the goal of the club now and we are looking forward to the season.”

The Reds have certainly come closer to winning silverware under the guidance of Klopp but they have not managed to cross the last hurdle with three finals defeats in the process. As such, the German will be desperate to make amends during the ongoing campaign and it will be interesting to see whether the Merseyside outfit can make a strong challenge for the Premier League title this term.

Meanwhile, on “a personal scale, Shaqiri may have to adjust to a bench role at Anfield with Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, and Sadio Mane almost constants in the frontline. “Nonetheless, the Swiss should get opportunities during the latter stages of games whilst an injury to either Salah or Mane may earn him a regular starting role on the wider positions.
