Video – Usain BoltEsque run from a player who was loaned out by Liverpool

Liverpool loanee Lazar Markovic is either the fastest man in Europe or the entire Besiktas team are slower than Dejan Lovren trying to turn with the ball.

Brendan Rodgers shipped the winger out of Anfield this summer on loan to Fenerbahce, just a year after moving to England for £20m.

It seemed a strange decision at the time, but perhaps a run like this will give Rodgers cause to review his plans for the player.

Markovic took on pretty much the entire Besiktas team as he sliced through the middle and cut a teasing ball into the box.

In fact, he’s so quick that he’s attracted a lot of attention on social media because of this run against Besiktas last night.

The Serbian turned in another impressive performance for Fenerbahce, completing six dribbles but had to leave the field after 37 minutes due to injury.

His pace caused genuine problems for the Besiktas defence and Turkish sports daily Fanatik dubbed the Serbian “Usain Bolt” for his speedy display.

Markovic is expected to undergo a scan today to determine the extent of his injury.

Here is a video of that brilliant run as the Serbian wizard ran 75 metres in 11 seconds-
