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.”
