People Are Confused About What Phil Neville Has Said About Xherdan Shaqiri

Xherdan Shaqiri is Switzerland's best player but Phil Neville doesn't rate him. Even calling the winger a disgrace following his season with Stoke City.

Switzerland are pinning their hopes on Shaqiri to steer their side to the World Cup quarter-finals.

"Shaqiri was a disgrace for Stoke, last season," he said on BBC.

That's despite Shaqiri weighing in with the most goals for the club in the 2017/18 Premier League campaign, while only one player created more goals than him.

But still a disgrace according to Neville. Strange assessment, Phil.

Naturally, social media went into overdrive:

How do you rate Shaqiri? Let us know.
