Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Xherdan Shaqiri will be sidelined “for a while” after the Liverpool FC midfielder suffered a calf injury.

The Switzerland midfielder suffered the problem during Switzerland’s Nations League encounter with England on 9 June and he has now returned to Melwood for assessment.

The 27-year-old was assessed by the Merseyside outfit’s medical team upon his return to the training ground, and Klopp has now confirmed that he is set for a spell on the sidelines due to a torn calf muscle.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Liverpool FC’s website, Klopp said: “Shaq is still injured from the national team and it will take a while until he is in again.

“He has a tear in his calf, so he will not be involved for a while.”

Liverpool FC will be hoping to have the midfielder fit as soon as possible after he played an important role for the Reds last season, albeit largely from the bench.

Shaqiri scored six goals and made three assists in 24 Premier League appearances for the Reds last season as they finished in second place in the table and just a point behind Manchester City.

Liverpool FC will be looking to challenge for the title and go one step further next season after having come so close last term.
