Liverpool winger Xherdan Shaqiri has blasted former teammate, Charlie Adam after the latter accused him of being one of the reasons Stoke was relegated.

Adam said that Shaqiri was a big name player who let Stoke down after the Swiss international signed for the Reds in the summer.

The winger refuted this claim, stating that Adam was simply ‘jealous’

Recall that Charlie Adam spent a few seasons at Anfield and he didn’t shine after an exciting move from Blackpool.

“I’m a totally different type of person,” said Shaqiri to the Evening Standard, “Some ex-football players, or ex-team-mates, they spoke to the media and it looks like I am a bad boy or something but I’ve never been a bad boy or had some problems at a club!

“I think it’s just frustration maybe or jealousy because I had a good move.

“I was surprised that he spoke like this about me but that is sometimes the character of a player.

“I know what he said was totally wrong because at that time I played there – especially when times were hard – I was there and I was scoring a lot of goals.

“I was one of the only ones who helped the team with goals in difficult games and he was that guy who took the red card in league games [against Everton] and missed a penalty [against Brighton].

“For me, I’m a nice guy who likes to joke, so I think the people who spoke about me were totally wrong.”

Shaqiri added that all through his career he’d always worked hard and that he had nothing to prove to anyone.

“I’m just a player who wants to work and who does my job every day, the same as I always did,”

“I don’t have to prove Charlie Adam or some people that are speaking about me wrong.

“I know that people know how good I am – most of the people that understand football know that they are wrong.”
