XHERDAN SHAQIRI could be mistaken for wearing a Liverpool shirt on holiday after the Swiss star was snapped looking rather red while on holiday.
The 28-year-old showed off his sunburn while on a luxury yacht with friends in the Mediterranean Sea close to Formentera.
But his lobster look didn’t dampen his spirits as he was caught by cameras revelling in the Spanish island.
And one of Shaqiri‘s pals also forgot to apply sun cream as he too was too busy partying on deck.
Shaqiri faces an uncertain future this summer with the ex-Bayern Munich forward linked with a move away from Anfield.
It has been said that he is one of seven players that could leave Liverpool, along with Divock Origi and Harry Wilson.
LaLiga side Sevilla are just one club that are said to be interested in a £28million move for the former Stoke star.
FEEL THE BURN
Meanwhile Serie A outfit Roma could revive their interest in the player after they eyed up a move to bring him to Italy in January.
Newcastle had been keen to sign Shaqiri if their £300m takeover would be approved, but for the meantime, that potential deal doesn’t look like happening.
Shaqiri featured in just seven Premier League games under Jurgen Klopp in the 2019/2020 season, with Swiss coach Arno Rossini stating he doesn’t deserve his winners medal.
He said: “Xherdan is not a champion. We certainly cannot say that he left his mark with the teams with which he won. Not with the big guys at least.
“He was the protagonist in Basel, certainly not at Bayern or Liverpool.
“Let’s say that over the years he has often followed the games of his teams as a spectator, sitting in the best places. And millions have been paid for him.
“This, taking everything into account, makes me think that he is not one who always gives his best.”
