Xherdan Shaqiri is looking forward to Liverpool’s Champions League tie with Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening, which offers him the chance to play against his former side for the first time.
Shaqiri spent two-and-a-half years with the Bavarian side, winning two Bundesliga titles, two Pokal’s, and one Champions League title, scoring 17 goals in 81 appearances for the club.
Following spells at Inter Milan and Stoke City, Shaqiri is now an important player for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, having made a cut-price move in the summer following the Potters relegation to the Championship.
The Switzerland international has featured in 20 of Liverpool’s 26 Premier League games this season, scoring six goals and providing two assists, and is likely to be involved in the Reds Champions League tie against Bayern on Tuesday night, a fixture that the 27-year-old is relishing.
“I was very happy because I wanted to play against Bayern Munich, against my old team-mates and my old team,” Shaqiri told Liverpool’s official website.
“It was an amazing time (at Bayern). We won a lot of titles, we won the Champions League. We had the best team Bayern Munich had.
“It was an amazing feeling to win so many trophies. I had many great memories there, I will never forget them.
“I’m really looking forward to going there and trying to win the game in Munich with my team.”
