Liverpool midfielder promises to help Lazar Markovic improve
Jordan Henderson says Lazar Markovic is a fantastic player
Jordan Henderson has promised to help Liverpool flop Lazar Markovic improve.
The Serbia international has struggled to impress since his £20 move from Portuguese outfit Benfica in the summer transfer window.
I thought he was brilliant when he came on the other night
Markovic earned a red card for a careless flaying arm in the second half of Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Basel in the Champions League midweek.
But Liverpool vice-captain Henderson has jumped to the defence of the struggling Reds winger, insisting Markovic is a quality player.
“Lazar’s a fantastic player who’s got great potential,” Henderson said.
“In training we see the quality of the players that we’ve got in the group and I thought he was brilliant when he came on the other night.
“He was a real threat and possibly changed things in our favour, especially going forward because he looked really sharp. But, unfortunately, with the sending-off it came to an end. Hopefully he can take confidence from that, kick on and start doing it on a more consistent basis.”
