Jürgen Klopp saluted the performance of Xherdan Shaqiri in Liverpool's victory over Red Star Belgrade, claiming that his assist for Mohamed Salah was a touch of "genius".

He shared a picture of them both shirtless, the image of Salah taken from after full-time in Liverpool's 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday.

'You ask him all the time and then I go to him and say, 'How do you feel because you haven't scored as often?' - I am not insane! It only happens if you work hard, you are in the right spaces, if your team-mates see you in the right moments and if you make the right runs, then you can score.

"I think I have the quality and vision to give good passes and you can see that I wanted to give another good performance. The most important thing is to win as a team and the game was brilliant from everyone".

"It's a great record and I'm very proud".

The Switzerland worldwide was fined during the World Cup after he celebrated a goal against Serbia by making an eagle gesture, a symbol similar to the one on the Albanian flag.

Then Ronaldo was asked about what he felt about his former teammates comments, and he gave an equally defiant response. He said: "I think it would be insane (to sack him), you have to let him work". "We have to let him do his job".

The smattering of Red Star fans at Anfield, defying the UEFA ban on the club's travelling support, jeered the midfielder whenever he touched the ball and a much more hostile reception would be likely for him in the return game on Nov.6.

He has ethnic Albanian heritage linked to Kosovo, a former Serbian province that declared independence in 2008.

"One of Liverpool's problems past year was their depth of squad and when you look at the Champions League final and see the substitutes of Liverpool against the substitutes of Real Madrid, you could see there was a significant difference in quality and I think Klopp has addressed that". "I think we knew how to play with each other", mused Salah when asked about his relationship with his fellow forwards.

"He played really well and it was good to see". It always helps a player if you play a good game - it helped us tonight and helped him. It is not about politics, it is about football.

"I hope it goes down to the wire".
