Marko Grujic got his Liverpool career off to an impressive start by scoring on his debut against Fleetwood Town.

The Serbian became Jurgen Klopp’s first Liverpool signing when he joined from Red Star Belgrade in January.

But Kopites have had to wait until now to see the 20-year-old in action, and boy are they impressed.

Grujic, a midfielder, turned home Alberto Moreno’s cross in the 18th minute.

He pretty much bossed the first 45 minutes, proving why Klopp was eager to make him his first signing.

Grujic’s goal

Next Steven Gerrard 

The Serbia U21 international, a member of Serbia’s FIFA U20 World Cup winning side in 2015, joined the Reds for £5.1 million at the start of the year and was loaned back to Red Star.

Nobody’s willing to call him the next Steven Gerrard just yet... Actually, turns out they are.


Grujic spoke of the “euphoria” he felt when he received a call from the Liverpool manager.

“It was one of the most beautiful days in my life,” he recalled, per the Liverpool Echo.

“When my representatives told me that I had a call from someone, I didn’t dream that on the other side of the line would be Jurgen Klopp.

“At first I was confused a little bit when I saw I had a call from England. How should I feel when I’ve only seen or heard him only on TV until that point? I was both happy and confused.

“After that it was a big euphoria. It was nice, but after that I’ve been a little tired after a lot of stories in the media.

“Now, though, I have signed for one of the biggest clubs in the world and I’m very satisfied.

“I am living a dream that every boy wants to live.”
