Liverpool winger Xherdan Shaqiri has revealed what Jurgen Klopp told him moments before he came on as a substitute to grab a quick-fire brace against Manchester United on Sunday.
With the score at 1-1, the Swiss international entered the fray on the 70-minute mark. Just 10 minutes later Liverpool found themselves 3-1 up and cruising thanks to two deflected strikes, both from Shaqiri.
After the game, Shaqiri revealed the tactical that Klopp gave him before he came on, claiming the Liverpool manager told him to be as direct as possible in what little time he had to impact the game.
"Obviously I’d be lying if I said you are not disappointed when you are on the bench – every player is disappointed when he’s on the bench," he added.
"But I always stay positive and try to help the team when I come on and you saw today when I came on I tried to help the team and to have an impact."
