Jurgen Klopp praises Xherdan Shaqiri's stunning Liverpool debut

Sanchez spends time with Hollywood stars after pre-season win over AC Milan

Liverpool have been by far the better side throughout the first half in MI but have failed to take the chances they created, though they took the lead thanks to Mane's penalty.

Jurgen Klopp admitted that Xherdan Shaqiri's start to his Liverpool career was better than he anticipated after the Switzerland global scored a stunning overhead kick in Saturday's 4-1 victory over Manchester United.

Xherdan Shaqiri scored an exquisite overhead kick on his Liverpool debut as his side thrashed Manchester United 4-1 at the Michigan Stadium.

The Reds were awarded a second penalty in the 73rd minute, which Sheyi Ojo converted after Andrew Robertson was brought down by Ander Herrera.


"Obviously I have been the last 18 months here and the manager shows good faith and trust in me, he wants me to play and he thinks it's the right thing for me", Pereira said. We played simple and quick, kept them moving.

"After the [Borussia] Dortmund game, I didn't feel really good but I knew I don't have to make it bigger than it is". Today we don't make it bigger of course. Competing in the International Champions Cup clash in Carson, California, the Premier League club went on to beat the Serie A club with a 9-8 lead in the penalty shootout that saw a total of 26 kicks from the spot. For him it was very good moment in his career, having already had a real experience at Bayern, at Stoke and at Inter. "Those were important moments in his career and now we have him and he can now play together with a few really nice football players".

"No, I am happy with our players, to be honest, so I don't see the need", Klopp added.
