Marko Grujic’s transfer to Liverpool could have been scuppered on two seperate occasions. Inspite of Liverpool having agreed a fee with Red Star Belgrade for the 19 year old his father threatened to block the move when he siezed the boy’s passport because he did not want to ruin his son’s career and claimed that he “won’t let them destroy my boy!” After having crossed that hurdle it seemed that Grujic’s transfer to Liverpool would we completed without any more fuss but now a bizarre reason has been revealed that could have put this transfer into jeopardy – Marko Grujic’s claustrophobia!!

The Serb is claustrophobic and he thought about pulling out of his medical because of that.The 19-year-old signed for the Reds on a four-year contract from Red Star Belgrade, where he has returned on loan for the rest of the season, but the MRI scan during his medical almost ruined the transfer.

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Grujic said ““I am very claustrophobic, so it was very scary for me to lie for one hour in the dark in the MRI scanner.

“When I heard that the MRI scan was compulsory, I was very close to saying that I didn’t want to do it! I was really afraid. I couldn’t stay inside it for one minute!

“I called the doctor and raised a bit of panic so they were persuading me for around 20 minutes before I finally accepted to go inside it again. Finally, I bit the bullet and I got on with it. They made some special conditions for me.”

Fortunately for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp Grujic did, however, manage to get over his fear and pass the medical.

“After that, I went to Melwood, signed the deals and they took photos of me.”
