Shaqiri targets Champions League success at Liverpool this season

Xherdan Shaqiri

New Liverpool signing Xherdan Shaqiri says he wants to win the Champions League with Liverpool this season. The Swiss international says the Reds are more than capable to go that extra step and win the biggest European club tournament. Liverpool made a dream run into the Champions League final last season, but fell at the final against Real Madrid (3-1).

“I hope I can repeat that because I know how it feels to win the Champions League,” Shaqiri told Sky Sports News. “It is really amazing and I think we can do it. We have good quality – especially with the new players that have been brought in – they have very good quality. I’m looking forward to the new season and I hope we can finally win titles.”

Shaqiri did also admit that Jurgen Klopp was one of the main reasons he chose to sign a contract at Liverpool. “When I heard the club wanted me I wanted to come because I’ve known him a long time. I’ve admired him for a long time and I am really happy to be here. Jurgen Klopp is a great person and a great character with a winning mentality and that’s the most important thing.”
