Liverpool Loan Star Named The Best Midfielder The Club Have Had In 20 Years

Liverpool have a bunch of players out on loan and one of them has garnered high, high praise.

Ryan Kent, Danny Ings, Sheyi Ojo are just a few players enjoying football away from Anfield.

Not to mention Marko Grujic who's currently plying his trade in Germany with Hertha Berlin, and he has certainly impressed.

So much so, manager Pal Dardai has hailed him as the best midfielder in his time at the club.

"I've been at Hertha for 22 years," he said glowingly of the Serbian international. "This isn't meant as an insult to anyone else, but Marko is by far the best midfielder I've seen in my time at the club.

"I was a defensive midfielder and managed to score 17 goals, which isn't bad.

"But Marko carries much more of a goal threat, he's got a sensational shot on him and is much better than I was [...] He can play anywhere in midfield.

"He's got so much potential, and you can see that out on the pitch. He's so robust in the middle of the park, but he can still play.

"He's good in the air, he wins tackles and has got such a strong desire to win. I can only say: 'respect'. And he's not even fully fit. Just imagine what he'll be like when he is!"

Huge claim.

Grujic, 22, has barely featured for Liverpool since transferring from Red Star Belgrade in 2016 for a reported £5.1 million.

He's also spent time at Cardiff City on loan.

Can Grujic break into Jurgen Klopp's squad upon returning to Liverpool in the summer?
