Departing Liverpool goalkeeper Andy Lonergan has dubbed Xherdan Shaqiri a “magician”.

Like Lonergan, Shaqiri is expected to leave Anfield this summer.

But the veteran keeper, discussing their attackers, told the Liverpool Echo: “No-one’s surprised me because they’re all unreal.

“The one I really don’t like facing is Shaqiri.

“When he’s shooting, he can do whatever he wants with that left foot. I’m always thinking when we’re doing five-a-side, “Please be on my team,” because if he’s against you, he’s a little magician with his finishing.”
