Xherdan Shaqiri ready to fight for his place in upcoming season

Xherdan Shaqiri recently admitted that he is ‘ready for a new challenge’.

Earlier last week, the 29-year old Swiss international said he wants more gametime at Liverpool and will leave in the summer in pursuit of a new challenge.

“I told Liverpool board I feel ready for a new challenge,” said Shaqiri. “They accepted my decision and will now consider bids to sell me. Liverpool won’t stop me this summer.

“I’d love to come back to Italy, and I’d like to play for Lazio.”

Now it seems like the Reds No.23 player has changed his mind and wants to focus on Liverpool’s new campaign.

Shaqiri said: “Good, good. I’m happy to be with the team again here. I’m looking forward to having a good pre-season and start a good campaign again.

“We had some holidays, the guys who were at the Euros or the Copa America. I’m a couple of days here and I’m trying to get 100 per cent fit again. I’m feeling good.

“It was a very good Euros personally and of course with my country. It was something historical what we achieved and it’s something special for my country. I’m very proud of this.

“It says to me the hard work I do every day and with my country. I’m very, very pleased and happy and proud, of course, to achieve this kind of thing. I hope much more is going to come.”
