22-year-old Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic says he does not want to be at Liverpool next season, and would rather stay in Germany with Hertha Berlin than return to Merseyside.
Grujic was Jurgen Klopp’s first signing for the Reds, but he says he can’t see himself getting the game time that he wants next season, so he’d rather go out on loan again.
He told Bild: “I feel very comfortable in Berlin. Hertha gave me a great opportunity to play in the Bundesliga.
“This time at Hertha has been brilliant so far. If I could choose myself, I would stay with Hertha for another year, or maybe even two years, to make a very good name for myself by improving all my qualities – that’s only possible if you play every game.”
Another move to the German capital seems likely, for sure, given Hertha’s manager called Grujic the best midfielder the club has had in 20 years a couple of months back.
Grujic has three goals and one assist in the Bundesliga this season for Hertha, and he’ll be 23 early next month. If another loan move isn’t put on the table by the Reds, he might even move on permanently this summer.
Klopp still likes him and will want to give him every chance to succeed at Liverpool – but from these quotes, it seems like Grujic has already made up his mind.
