Ex-Liverpool fullback Degen slams Shaqiri: These are absolute no-goes!

Former Liverpool fullback Philipp Degen has taken aim at Xherdan Shaqiri.

Degen is no fan of his fellow Swiss, who left Stoke City for the Reds this summer.

He told Zwoelf: "I think it is a compensation transfer for Liverpool. He was cheap for English conditions."

Shaqiri left Stoke having criticised his teammates and Degen, now an agent, continued: "Apparently the media training has completely failed. How can a player say that? He also said that in Germany everyone but Bayern Munich would be a relegation for him. These are absolute no-goes!

"Everything in life will catch up with you sometime. I keep saying this to my players: Always imagine a mirror, always be humble. One should not forget: Stoke has dropped down with him.

"He has to be very careful how he performs there. This is not Stoke anymore, it's like day and night. It will not be easy for him."
