Marko Grujic can't wait to represent Liverpool again after his first appearance last week
Marko Grujic says he can’t wait to line out for Liverpool again after the teenager’s impressive start to life as a Red.
The Serbian playmaker made his first appearance for the 18-time English champions in Wednesday night’s 5-0 victory over Fleetwood Town in what was the club’s second pre-season friendly of the summer.
Grujic scored the opener in a the landslide victory after the midfielder agreed a deal to join Liverpool from Red Star Belgrade in January before being loaned back to the Serbian club for the remainder of the season.
The 20-year-old was omitted from Jurgen Klopp’s Reds side for Sunday’s 2-0 win against Wigan Athletic as the Liverpool manager looked to give some other members of his squad a run out.
However, Grujic is eagerly anticipating his next opportunity to pull on the famous Liverpool shirt as Klopp’s squad prepare to jet out to the United States of America this week.
Grujic posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote:
“First training with @chelseafc and Il Mister today … great feeling to be Blue ❤🔵 #CFC”
Liverpool finished in eighth place in the Premier League table last season.
The Reds will start their top-flight campaign with an away trip to Arsenal on 14 August.
