Arrived at the end of August, during the last days of the transfer window, Xherdan Shaqiri has already acclimated well to his new life, under the OL jersey. The ex-Liverpool player was quick to become a vital pawn in Peter Bosz’s squad. At the microphone of RMC Sport this Wednesday before the meeting Thursday (6:45 pm on RMC Sport 1) of the Europa League against Danish club Brondby, the Swiss striker confided in his adaptation.
