Xherdan Shaqiri Still Has The Most Insane Calves In World Football
It's official - Xherdan Shaqiri still holds the crown of having the most insane calves in all of football.
The Swiss international celebrated alongside Liverpool teammates last night after winning the club's first ever Premier League title.
It was a warm night in the UK and the 28-year-old opted to wear a pair of shorts which showed off his massive legs in all their glory.
He could be seen lurking in the background as Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk posed for a photo and his lack of gametime this season clearly hasn't impacted his training regime.
What makes Shaqiri's calves more impressive is that he's been out of injury since January - due to a calf problem.
Shaqiri's calf's aren't normal. Looks like he's got a fucking nokia 3310 stuck in his leg https://t.co/TtyyM5TbLz- cp (@freecjp) June 26, 2020
He's yet to feature for Liverpool since the league's restart and manager Jurgen Klopp discussed his injury last weekend.
Prior to Sunday's 0-0 draw with Everton, Klopp stated: "He was injured and he is not ready but he is on a good way."
"Shaq has trained but not in massive parts with the rest of the team. He will not be [out for] long, but he is the only one out."
It is well-documented that the Reds forward has always maintained an incredibly bulgy leg, whether than be during his days at FC Basel, Bayern Munich or Inter Milan.

His legs have grown even bigger down the years, so how does he maintain such strong legs despite only playing in six Premier League games this year?
A clip with international teammate Eren Derdiyok showcases his intense workouts and it genuinely hurts to watch. Just take a look at the above footage and tell me this wouldn't burn.
It's fair to say the winger isn't training with this much intensity while nursing his current injury.
Thursday's Premier League title win will see Shaqiri add yet another medal to an already impressive trophy cabinet.
His time with Bayern brought three Bundesliga titles as well as a Champions League, with a second European triumph coming with Liverpool last season.
