Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has assured winger Xerdan Shaqiri that his future lies at Anfield amidst rumors of a possible transfer out of the club in January.
Klopp addressed the Xerdan Shaqiri transfer rumours during his pre-match press conference for the Crystal Palace game as he said that the Swiss international will get adequate playing time after recovering from injury.
According to the Liverpool boss, it will take a while for Xerdan Shaqiri to get back up to full speed after a long time out on the sidelines as a result of injury.
Xerdan Shaqiri recently recovered from a calf injury that made him miss five weeks of football.
