Markovic’s strong message for Liverpool after notching for Belgians

Winger Lazar Markovic has hit out at Liverpool after finally scoring his first goal for loan side Anderlecht.

Liverpool loaned Markovic out to the Belgian outfit in January, having failed to find a permanent buyer for the attacker.

Markovic joined Liverpool for £20m in summer 2014 and featured regularly under former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers.

However, after falling out of favour with the now Celtic chief, Markovic admitted that there “was a problem” between the two.

The 24-year-old has never played for Liverpool under Klopp, being loaned out to Fenerbahce, Sporting Lisbon and Hull before heading to Anderlecht this campaign.

He netted in a 2-1 defeat to Genk at the weekend, and then chose to take a pop at Liverpool.

He told Belgian newspaper DH, as translated by Sport Witness: “It’s to show that I’m still the same player, to show the people at Liverpool that they can’t treat me that way.

“Yes, it’s okay to take it personally when you are not let go because they’re asking for an unrealistic transfer amount.”
