Shaqiri joined Bayern from Swiss side Basel earlier in the summer and is currently regarded as one of the most promising talents in Europe.
And while he started in the 3-0 win over Greuther Furth at the weekend, the 20-year-old is likely to lose his place in Juup Heynckes' starting XI once Franck Ribery returns from injury, as the Frenchman and Arjen Robben remain Bayern's first-choice wingers.
Nonetheless, Shaqiri insists that is fine by him as long as it is what is best for the team as a whole.
"It does not really matter who features from the start and who has to settle for a spot on the bench," he told TZ. "The most important thing is that we act as a team this season.
"Only then can we be successful. Even when I end up on the bench in the next few weeks, I still don't really mind even though every player obviously always wants to play."
Bayern are next in action on Saturday when they take on Stuttgart.
