Shaqiri hails ‘amazing’ Anfield

Xherdan Shaqiri has described Anfield as an an ‘amazing stadium’ after he completed a £13 million move to Liverpool.

The 26-year-old has joined the Champions League runners up in a cut price move from Stoke City, after Liverpool triggered a release clause in his contract.

That clause had become active due to Stoke City’s relegation from the Premier League last season, and he now becomes the third new addition to join Jurgen Klopp’s squad this summer, following the recent arrivals of Naby Keita and Fabinho.

Shaqiri, who has been starring for Switzerland at his summer’s World Cup, has cut his end of season holiday short to complete the move to Anfield, a stadium which he has described as amazing:

“It’s an amazing stadium. I played there with Stoke and I knew it before – there’s an amazing atmosphere with amazing fans,” he said in an interview for Liverpool’s in house TV station.

“I hope I can enjoy it and give them something back with the team. We can give them a lot of happiness and success. We want to win games and be successful.

“As an opponent it’s always difficult to come into the stadium – I knew it and I know it – so I’m really happy to now be with this family and play against other top teams, good teams, in this stadium and to try to give them good performances.”
