Markovic unhappy with Liverpool position & minutes

Lazar Markovic has once more complained about his position and lack of playing minutes at Liverpool, hinting that he did not feel valued.

Markovic made 31 appearances in his debut season for Liverpool last campaign, but the Serbian struggled to make his mark as the Reds endured a difficult time themselves.

Markovic alluded that his relationship with former manager Brendan Rodgers ‘was a problem‘ last season, and the winger has praised current loan club Fenerbahce in comparison with his parent side.

“I was not able to prove myself at Liverpool as I was played out of position but thank goodness that is not the case at Fenerbahce,” he said.

“I am played in position here and have managed to get myself into the first team it is absolutely fantastic to play regularly and feel valued.”

Markovic continued to describe Fener as a “great community,” saying “I do not feel any crowd pressure on myself.”

The £20million signing also praised former club Benfica, going on to unfavourably compare the Reds to the Portuguese club.

“I will never forget Benfica,” he said.

“Benfica is a very special place for me. I spent a very good time there, and we won both the cup and league championships.

“Therefore, of course, it is impossible to forget the Benfica.

“But I can not say the same for Liverpool.

“The reason is the following: there I did not show the performance I wanted, and I couldn’t get the minutes I wanted.”
