His arrival had caused anticipation among OL supporters. Since then, the name of Xherdan Shaqiri has above all been synonymous with disappointment after six difficult months in the Rhône for the Nati player. But, Peter Bosz remains confident and notes progress with the Swiss.
Bayern Munich, Liverpool and two Champions League titles. Xherdan Shaqiri’s CV is enough to make your mouth water, he especially made OL supporters dream. This summer, when Lyon put six million euros on the table to afford the Swiss, they even thought to afford the jackpot with a player who recovered to leave France during the last Euro. But since then, they must have become disillusioned. In the OL jersey, Shaqiri has a goal and two assists in 14 appearances. A famous balance sheet reinforced by a weak influence of Switzerland in the Lyon game. Performances which do not make him a regular holder and lead to a reflection on his future in Lyon.
Bosz satisfied with Shaqiri for a few weeks
Indeed, rumors about a possible departure of the Nati player have intensified in recent days. However, Shaqiri’s situation with OL can get off to a good start and it is Peter Bosz himself who says so. The Dutch technician remains optimistic about Shaqiri and he made it known at a press conference this Wednesday, two days before the derby against ASSE, during which he was asked about the Swiss’ performance in Troyes.

” He came back well but that does not surprise me because he has been training well for a few weeks. Players who need another title have to adapt a bit more. He did not disappoint me against Troyes “, he said. Bosz is best placed to know his player and his words will perhaps reassure the most skeptical of Lyon supporters. However, they will mainly wait for Shaqiri to chain matches and offer better content to indulge in optimism.
