Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic has now been saddled with the responsibility to replace the 27 year old, who has scored six goals in 28 games for Liverpool this season, as they awaits Georgia for their opening Euro qualifiers on Saturday and Denmark at home three days later.
Shaqiri, who was an unused substitute in Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over Fulham on Sunday has not enjoyed plenty of playing time for the klopp’s men.
He has not played a minute for Liverpool since the 0-0 draw at Old Trafford with Manchester United on February 24th, but with Liverpool challenging for the Premier League and through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, it is certain Klopp wants all his players fits for the final round of the season.
