      Sorry but I think that's a disgusting outlook to have on life.

      Lazar has already earned more than some of us on here combined will earn in a lifetime.

      Most of us would do anything to swap our jobs to play football for a living earning a fraction of what Markovic is paid.

      He is a greedy c**t plain and simple.

      Any player with dignity in himself having already earned a fortune would have left to play elsewhere.

      I mean we all need to have a purpose in life it's not just about having lots of money.

      As high and moral as that sounds and I'm not sure what money he is on but probably difficult to leave say £50k a week for £25k.

      Well.......... looks like we may be stuck with Markovic for a while. Read that his contract has been leaked (not looked into it) and he has a two year option extension at a +30% wage increase and will get to pick up his loyalty bonus of £2m next summer.

      If true, well played, well f**king played....

      An option is surely for the club rather than the player and do you not need to actually play some games to pick up a loyalty bonus?

      All noble sentiments but I bet if you were in his situation, knowing that you'd have to take a huge paycut to move on you'd stay for that one extra year and then with a shedload of cash in the bank you can pick and chose how to reboot your career, you'd really have to be a bit of an idiot not to. By the way our anger should not be at him it should be for the daft tw*t who gave him this contract.

      Struggling to see where he will even find a team for next season, I can honestly see him having to drop down a division or two, whether that’s in England or abroad. He’s finished playing in a top division, put himself in a worse situation finding a new club after the Anderlecht failing.

      I'm angry at both to be honest.

      Hopefully it's a learning lesson for the club in terms of player contracts.

      And hopefully Lazar loses all his money on a roulette table the day he leaves this club.

      If he had left the club and his Agent would have had to make his contract whole they would have effectively paid him to go.
      The fact he knows he isn't wanted but wants to hang around doing sweet FA proves he was wrong for the club in the first place

      Aren't contract extensions usually triggered by a minimum number of games played? And if the loyalty bonus was like Neymar's at Barca it'll be a bonus triggered for not negotiating with other club or something along those lines. Not a bad incentive to not play ball with Anderlecht.

      Supposedly he has the option to extend for another 2 seasons regardless of how many games he has played, same with loyalty bonus, but I guess we may know a little bit more later on in the season.

      Yeah, idk. I still can't find the leak contract info, but it has been mentioned a few times by various people.

      It effectively was a 7 year contract he signed then, for an unproven player. Even for a superstar player it would be nuts to do that contract.

      I see that he played for the U23s today.

      Why? Why would we waste any match time on him that some young player should be getting? Actually, I wouldn't even waste the time in training sessions on him. I get that we're stuck paying him, but just tell him there's no need to come in since he doesn't care what he does for his money anyway.

      Markovic appeared to like a tweet celebrating Red Star's victory over Liverpool - but he's explained the motive behind his actions on social media
