Shaqiri enjoyed Jurgen Klopp's derby celebrations.


Shaqiri says he enjoyed Klopp's emotional post-match celebrations after Liverpool beat Everton in the Merseyside derby on Sunday.


Xherdan Shaqiri believes Jurgen Klopp didn't intend to disrespect anyone with his emotional celebrations after Liverpool’s stoppage-time winner over Everton in the Merseyside derby.

The Liverpool manager ran onto the pitch and celebrated with goalkeeper Alisson after Divock Origi scored the winning goal against the Toffees at Anfield on Sunday.

Klopp revealed he apologised to Everton boss Marco Silva for his celebrations but he could still be punished by the Football Association.

However, when Shaqiri was asked by Sky Sports for his view on the incident, he said: "Every person is emotional and you saw that when you score in the last minute of the derby, the game was also fantastic, so there's a lot of emotions in there.


"It happens. Many coaches have done that before, it's something nice and good, but it's not to disrespect the opponent, it's emotions and it happens in football. It was nice to see the emotions from the coach."

Shaqiri continued: "It was an amazing feeling. You saw the emotions from the players and the coach, it was a really nice win.

"The spirit in the team is very good and that's very important. We are working very closely together and it's important to know each other better.

"We are like a small family. It has to stay like this and we have to enjoy our work every day. It reflects on the pitch."
