Lazar Markovic discusses the goal that almost was during the win over Sunderland…
Lazar Markovic is becoming an increasingly important player for Liverpool this season. Against Sunderland last weekend, the winger scored one, and might have had another after attempting a stunning volley.
Speaking about the effort, he is quoted on Liverpool’s official website, saying: “If it had gone in, it would have been the best goal of my career.
“I have watched other players and picked it up from them. I learned from the other players because I saw them do it. I had a go in the match.
“I haven’t seen anyone try it like I did. [The technique] is very hard because maybe if I tried 10 times, I might not have scored a goal. But I think I was lucky as well.
“I was hopeful that it would be a goal. Nothing really goes through your head, you go for it. It didn’t go in, but what can you do? You carry on.”
