On-loan Liverpool player Lazar Markovic has just suggested that his poor spell with the club was down to Brendan Rodgers’ management.
Lazar Markovic signed for Liverpool from Portuguese side Benfica for a fee of £20 million in the summer of 2014. However, despite impressing in the Premiera Liga, the Serbian struggled to ever find a run of form at Anfield.
After a poor debut season at Liverpool last campaign, Markovic was loaned out to Fenerbahce over the summer and since moving to Turkey, he has already shown flashes of his best form.
With reports this week that Jurgen Klopp is considering recalling Markovic from his loan in January, the winger has now spoken out about his bad spell at Liverpool and essentially pointed the finger at sacked manager Brendan Rodgers.
“I didn’t have a good relationship with the coach,” he said speaking to Portuguese newspaper A Bola. “That was a problem.
“I played in many positions but didn’t play in mine.”
The Serbian played just two games in his favoured right-wing position at Liverpool, while Rodgers attempted to fit him into five other positions during his 20 Premier League appearances.
Markovic still thinks that he may have a future with the Reds however, as he stated; “I do not look at the past… And Liverpool have a new coach.”
