Liverpool has potential to get better, says Shaqiri


Xherdan Shaqiri believes Liverpool have the potential to get even better after enjoying an “unbelievable year” in 2019 that included Champions League glory in Madrid.

The Reds have crowned kings of Europe for a sixth time thanks to a 2-0 victory over domestic rivals Tottenham, their success in the Spanish capital helping ease the pain of narrowly missing out on the Premier League title to Manchester City.

It was a second Champions League success for Shaqiri, who had previously lifted the trophy during his time with Bayern Munich, helping make amends following Liverpool’s defeat to Real Madrid in the 2018 showpiece.


In an interview with the club’s official website, the Switzerland international reflected on the achievements of Jurgen Klopp’s squad in the previous season.

“It was an unbelievable year for us. It was a shame we didn’t win the league but it was amazing to get the Champions League title again for Liverpool,” Shaqiri said.

“For me, the second time. You never forget these kinds of feelings, these kinds of trophies you win with the team. And to celebrate with the fans, after a long time they could celebrate something big in the city, was just amazing.

“The potential for this team is very high, I think we can go as high as possible. But we need to stay on our toes and to be at our highest level to be really very, very successful.”

Liverpool reached the final thanks to a stunning comeback against Barcelona in the last four, overturning a 3-0 deficit from the first leg as they won 4-0 on Merseyside.
