Liverpool has been assured that after two years on loan at Hertha Berlin, Marko Grujic will return to Anfield as a more complete player.
Serbia ‘s international Grujic is coming to the end of his stay at Hertha, which reported that at the end of the month he will return to his parent club.
In Jurgen Klopp ‘s plans for next season, the 24-year-old former Red Star Belgrade midfielder can feel there is a role to him.
Hertha sporting director Michael Preetz said: “The loan deal between us and Liverpool and the contract with Marko Grujic will end on 30 June is 100 percent certain. Both clubs have decided he will return to Liverpool. Over the past two years, the conclusion of this loan agreement is very positive and it has had positive effects on everyone involved.”
Liverpool is going to bring back a player who’s certainly more seasoned than he was before, and he’s received some very valuable game time.
“And we’ve also benefited with Marko from these last two years. Marko is a player appearing in both penalty boxes. He ‘d played extraordinary just in his first year. Now he’s getting back into his good shape after the restart. He’s just a very good player. So I thought this loan agreement made sense for me. Of course, I’m still hoping for that. You really can’t give up on your goals,” Grujic told Goal in January.
Meanwhile, Grujic has never relinquished his dream of becoming a regular first-team for Liverpool, but he knows how hard it will be to work his way into the side of Jurgen Klopp.
