On this week’s Media Matters, Nina Kauser is joined by Pete Smith, Sports Reporter for Stoke on Trent Live at The Sentinel. Pete gives the view from Stoke City on Liverpool's new boy Xherdan Shaqiri and gives insight into what Liverpool should expect from the Swiss international.
Nina and Pete discuss:
- The transfer from Stoke to Liverpool, including the fee
- Shaqiri's time at Stoke
- Xherdan's reputation at Stoke
- Relationship with the fans
- What type of personality he has, any funny stories of his whilst at Stoke.
- Strengths and weaknesses
- Any truth to attitude issues? How will he cope with rotation?
- Fitness concerns
Nina is then joined by Gags to close off the podcast and discuss Shaqiri some more after what they'd learnt from the interview with Pete.
