Xherdan Shaqiri reveals why he left Liverpool to join Lyon

Xherdan Shaqiri opens up on his decision to leave Liverpool.

The 29-year old winger joined French side Lyon in a £9.5m move this summer window in search of more first-team football.

He has been a key member of Klopp’s squad in the last few years but has struggled to break out in the first-team in recent times.

The Swiss international was limited to only seven starts across all competitions last season.

Shaqiri now reveals the main reason why he opted for Lyon for the next step in his career.

“I’m excited and very happy to be here,” Shaqiri told French broadcaster TF1, as per InsideFutbol. “Peter Bosz loves possession-[based], attacking football. He was one of the main reasons for me to come [to Lyon].

“I want to succeed and take them to a new level. With my experience and my level of game, I want to help this club regain its former glory.

“The objective is to win new trophies, to put Lyon back where it was more than ten years ago. It’s time to take this team to the place it deserves.”
