Liverpool star Xherdan Shaqiri has reminded his critics of his past achievements as he demands for more respect.

Shaqiri who has had previous spells in Germany and Switzerland thinks his record with his former club Stock City should not be used as a basis to judge him as he protested the scenario where his reputation is placed in bad light.

Before coming to England, Shaqiri had a successful career with FC Basel, where he helped win three Swiss league titles and also moving to Bayern Munich where he also won two Bundesliga titles, two German Cups and also the Champions League.

The 27-year-old has since moved on following his £13.5 move from Stock City to the Anfield and has found his new form in recent week especially scoring a goal in Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Cardiff last weekend.

He admitted that relegating with Stock City remains a bad experience and one that hurts as he wished that they return back to the top flight league as soon as possible.

With suggestions that he takes part of the blame for City’s woes, but he thinks he doesn’t deserve to be given such negative tag, stressing that the places he has played before and his achievements should also be remembered and used as a basis for argument.
