Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic started his new season with the club with a stunning strike in their pre-season game against Tranmere Rovers.
The 21-year old is considered as one of the best young players at Anfield but he was sent on loan to Red Star last season to get more playing time. However, he now has the ideal start to the upcoming season as he sent an early message to Jurgen Klopp.
He had a disappointing time with the club so far having managed only eight appearances for the Reds since moving to Premier League in January last year. However, he is tipped to break into the team’s starting lineup with his immense potential and this season could be his breakthrough year.
He has once again impressed with his stunning strike in the pre-season and was very happy with the goal he scored after the game.
“It was a very nice victory for us, the first in a new season,” he told LFCTV.
“I’m happy to get a goal again, in our first match, and for us the most important thing is to get 45 minutes more to get fitter.
“We go again tomorrow in training, then we’ve got another game on Friday.
“This goal will give me more confidence, I will do a lot in this pre-season to show the manager and his staff that I can play.”
The Serbian midfielder has scored from 25 yards out and found the corner of Scott Davies’ net to cap his brilliant performance. Here is the Grujic’s goal.
Despite the incredible beginning to the season, there are still questions if Klopp would keep the midfielder for the season or once again loan him out for his development. The Reds have already signed Mohamed Salah and are in the market to sign one more defensive midfielder, since Grujic played either as central midfielder or attacking midfielder it could seriously hamper his game time if he decides to stay at Anfield.
A decision on his game time for the next time would surely be taken by Klopp and the club hierarchy in the coming days. Do let us know your thoughts on the goal!!
