Really? Ex-Liverpool midfielder Adam now praising Shaqiri

Stoke City and former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam has praised Xherdan Shaqiri for the way he has settled at Anfield.

Adam, who played with Shaqiri at the bet365 Stadium, admitted he had "done incredible" since forcing his way into Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool team.

“Listen, he went to Liverpool and he's done incredible, so fair play to him," Adam said, having previously questioned Liverpool's decision to sign him.

“I said what I said but he's a wonderful player, no doubt about that.

“It was just a worry, would he get into Liverpool's team? How would Liverpool find space in their team for him?

“But he's got in and hasn't looked back now."
