Xherdan Shaqiri insists he remains calm despite struggling to make an impact since his summer move from Stoke City to Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp sanctioned a £13million deal for the versatile winger who scored eight times and registered seven assists last season for a struggling side that was relegated from the Premier League.

The Switzerland international has made just two substitute appearances so far this season but it is confident of making a major impact at Liverpool and is delighted to be working under Klopp’s management.

“I am very relaxed because we have a lot of games and every player is going to have enough games to play I think,” Shaqiri said.

“I knew the coach before. This football I knew before, so it was not a surprise for me.

“Of course, it’s a big change from Stoke to Liverpool. Liverpool is a big, big team. But I know how to be in a big team because I played at Bayern Munich and I played at Inter Milan. So for me, I knew what it would be like.”

“I think we are going to have a lot of top games. Good games over the next few weeks and of course I am looking forward to them. We want to keep our performances the way they have been.

“Liverpool are one of the biggest teams in the world. Last year they had a very good year. Sadly they didn’t win a title but now we try to make a step forward and try to win titles. That’s the most important thing now, to be our goals. To win titles.”

Xherdan Shaqiri played for Switzerland in Tuesday’s defeat against England in the UEFA Nations League.
