      Welcome to Liverpool.

      Next season.

      Looks like the lad will get a summer off so here's hoping we have at least one fit player next August.

      Hi guys, Red Star and Liverpool fan here. Greetings from Belgrade.   xxxxx:action-smiley-065:

      I want to share with you a video from today's Red star friendly match against some low quality team in Italy. Marko played as AMC and scored first goal.  Red star won 10:2

      His goal is on 1:06 and his powerful shoot from a distance that finished on woodwork you can see on 1:34 (red-white shirt number 8 )

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YN1BH3_lfk

      Congrats, you've got a great player with great personality. He is a hard working, skillful, box-to-box midfielder (although he can play as DMC and AMC as well). His best feature, IMO, is ability to maintain ball under the pressure. He very rarely lose the ball.  Very good dribble skills. Powerful shoot. Very mature and stable personality for his age. I dare to say the best offspring of the Red Star Academy in the past 20 years,  together with Nemanja Vidic.  In my opinion he is already better player than Can. He only needs experience and some strength to be a top player. People from Red Star management know it, that's why they insisted on 10% from next transfer. The only problem that can occur is how quickly he will be able to adapt on the English style of football.

       I hope that he will be as good in LFC as he was in Red Star and that we will win Premier League next season with Marko in team.   :scarf:

      Good.

      Would have been very arrogant of him to think he was worthy of the number already.

      Marko Grujic reveals his Liverpool role, hints at Lazar Markovic’s future

      Jack Lusby on 24.02.2016

      Speaking ahead of his summer move to Merseyside, Marko Grujic has explained how Jürgen Klopp sees him as a box-to-box midfielder at Liverpool.


      Grujic has spent much of his career at Red Star Belgrade in a deep-lying midfield role, but has since been move forward into the No. 10 position, with manager Miodrag Bozovic utilising his power and long-range shooting ability.

      But when the 19-year-old makes his move to Liverpool this summer, he is likely to be moved back into more familiar territory.

      Grujic’s £5.1 million switch was set in motion by a phone call from Klopp, with the German detailing his plans for his development at the club.

      “He did most of the talking and told me about the plans that he had for me,” the midfielder told Serbian outlet Blic.

      “His vision is that I should be something between a No. 6 and a No. 10. What they call a box-to-box midfielder.

      “My only request was that I didn’t want to be loaned out, I just want to play for Liverpool.

      “He was very open, told me about how he sees my development.

      “When a coach like that calls you on the phone personally, that’s the greatest privilege.

      “That call really cemented my desire to join Liverpool.

      “He is famous as someone who likes to work with young players. He has made Subotic, Lewandowski, Kagawa.”

      Another young player who could join Grujic in Klopp’s developmental plans is Lazar Markovic, with the Serbia international set to return to Liverpool after a season-long loan with Fenerbahce.

      Klopp was reportedly keen on recalling the winger during the January transfer window, but the terms of his deal with the Turkish club made this impossible.

      Grujic continued to explain how Markovic played a key role in convincing him to move to Liverpool, suggesting that not all is lost for the 21-year-old.

      “I spoke with Lazar Markovic and he told me good things about the club,” he said.

      “He told me that Liverpool is a great club, that the pressure and expectations are enormous, and that the first two to three months are the most important.

      ‘I will have to prove myself during that period and show my qualities.

      “I will have to show what I am made of. I am very confident.”


      Grujic also told how his “heart almost stopped” on meeting the Liverpool squad at Melwood, with Dejan Lovren influential in helping him settle.

      “Dejan Lovren really cheered me up and impressed me. He is good friends with Lazar,” he continued.

      “He welcomed me with the words: ‘Is it finally over? We Balkan boys have to stick together!’.”

      Now aiming to finish off the season in style with Red Star, and bulk up ahead of a tough first season in the Premier League—”I want to be able to go into a duel with anyone”—Grujic will endear himself to supporters with his closing statement.

      “I would choose Liverpool over Real Madrid and Barcelona. I love them!” he said.

      “I love the Premier League because of the energy and the atmosphere.”

      The stage is set for Grujic to shine in the Premier League, and Klopp may be hoping that Markovic will be operating alongside him.

      Typical first 'good' interview.

      Looking forward to seeing this lad play. I don't want to pin my hopes to him as he's only young but by God are we crying out for a gem of a midfielder. Fingers crossed Marko's the one.

      Not so impressive performance from Marko in "eternal derby" Partizan - Red Star. He is much better as a box-to-box midfielder than as AMC. In last 2 matches he plays as AMC because the Red Star bring Damian LeTallec (brother of former Liverpool player Anthony) to play on Marko's position. The manager Miodrag Bozovic thought that he will be more dangerous when he is closer to the goal, but it turned out that his greatest strength is the ability to pass the ball from defense to attack, in which he is very, very good. Definitely his rightful place is in the middle of the pitch.

      Red Star won 1:2 . Partizan was in the same group with Augsburg in UEFA cup this season. Clubs are about the same quality (Augsburg - Partizan 1:3, Partizan - Augsburg 1:3). Former Manchester City player Valeri Bojinov plays as a striker for Partizan.

      Marko was involved in action which preceded the second goal. You can see it here:

      Manager thought that he would be more dangerous there, because of strong shot and good dribbling skills, but he lacks agility for that position IMO. Players of his size rarely have agility to play behind the striker.

      He doesn't play bad, to be clear, he just play very bad comparing to his performance as box-to-box midfielder.

      Congratulations!

      http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/marko-grujic-prepares-liverpool-fc-11280183?

      Marko Grujic is ready to start his Liverpool career this summer after realising his “dream” of winning the title with his boyhood club Red Star Belgrade.

      The 20-year-old midfielder was signed by Jürgen Klopp in a £5.1million deal back in January but insisted on remaining in his homeland on loan until the end of the campaign in order to help them clinch silverware.

      Grujic achieved that target on Tuesday when Predrag Sikimic's goal secured a 1-0 win over Vozdovac and gave Red Star an unassailable nine-point lead over closest rivals Cukaricki Belgrade in the Serbian Super League.

      Marco Grujic celebrates title win on Facebook

      It's a record 27th league title for Red Star and Grujic will cherish the achievement forever.

      The youngster posted on his Facebook page: “Champions!!!!!!! One of my dreams has come true.

      “A title with the greatest club in the world. I love these people. Thank you!”

      It was Red Star's third title since Serbia became an independent nation in 2006. They won 19 in the former Yugoslavia and five in its successor, the state union of Serbia and Montenegro.



      Red Star currently have to play their home games behind closed doors after being hit with a three-game crowd ban following fan violence in last month's derby with bitter city rivals Partizan.

      Grujic, who became the first signing of Klopp's Anfield reign, will link up with the Liverpool squad for the start of pre-season training in early July
