When Jürgen Klopp took over at Liverpool in 2015 few could have imagined just how transformational a figure he would be. The boss was at the centre of reinvention of the club from top to bottom; transfer policy was changed, the style of play became ferocious and irresistible. He is the best coach in the world. Indeed, if Marko Grujic does stick around this season he could feel like a new signing thanks to Jürgen Klopp’s coaching abilities.

‘Next Gerrard’

Marko Grujic was Jürgen Klopp’s first signing for the club when the Reds agreed a £5.1m with Red Star Belgrade in 2016.

The Serbian midfielder, 19-years-old at the time, was drawing comparisons with Steven Gerrard.

He signed for the Reds and subsequently went out on loan to Cardiff and Hertha Berlin having failed to get into the first team at Anfield at his young age.

Marko Grujic could stay

There have been plenty of rumours this summer that Marko Grujic is set to leave the club.

The Mail reported last week that AC Milan were in talks to sign the Serbian midfielder.

However, the Mirror today claimed that Jürgen Klopp is to give the ex-Red Star man a chance to fight for his place.


Hertha Berlin chief, Michael Preetz, indicated to Kicker that whilst Hertha want to keep him they believe the Reds are undecided on whether or not he will be in the Liverpool first team next season.

New signing

Jürgen Klopp is the best coach in the world. He gets the best out of players.

Marko Grujic could feel like a new signing with a year’s coaching from Jürgen under his belt.

We have seen the boss transform supposedly mediocre players into world class talents – who could’ve expected that Andy Robertson would go on to so quickly become the best left back in the world?

The Reds midfield is stacked with talent, if Grujic does stick around we can be sure that the boss has a plan for him. Fingers crossed that plan will see him realise his potential – if he does live up to the hype of when we bought him, he could feel like a new signing.
