Shaqiri aims to use ‘winning experience’ to help Liverpool be crowned Premier League Champions

Liverpool attacker Xherdan Shaqiri is hoping he can use some of the experience he gained while at German giants Bayern Munich to help Jurgen Klopp’s young side end their much publicised trophy-drought this season.

Switzerland international Shaqiri won three League titles with Basle in his homeland before he moved to Bayern in 2012 where he continued to amass a huge amount of silverware including two Bundesliga’s and the Champions League.

The 26-year-old attacker joined Liverpool this summer in a £13.5 million deal from relegated Stoke City, and the talented forward is hopeful he can pass on some of his winning experience to his younger teammates as the Anfield club look to win their first ever Premier League title this season.

“The aim is for the club to win something – that has to be the goal of our team,” Shaqiri told Liverpool’s official website.

“We have to take every game and try to win it, then close out from your mind the last game you won and think: ‘OK, we go forward now and look to the next game.’ It is like this that you win titles and I hope we are going to do that this year.

“First of all, we want to try to play very good football. But we also know it is not always the case that good football wins, so we need to know how to win games – that’s important – and to be competitive with other teams.

“As a new player I want to show my football. Most of the players know me already from the Premier League and from Bayern and I have a good amount of experience.

“I won many titles with Bayern and I want to try to give this experience to this Liverpool team which is still young and try to help them win something.”
