Liverpool midfielder admits he doesn’t fancy being at Anfield next season

Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic has insisted that he is not really looking forward to a return to Anfield as he continues to enjoy his spell over at Hertha Berlin.

The youngster agreed to sign a new deal with Jurgen Klopp’s side last summer before he was allowed to move to the Bundesliga side on a season-long loan.

Grujic has become a player who is highly valued in the Hertha Berlin team, having started several games for the German side so far this season, while scoring three goals.

The 22-year-old has been bothered by ankle injury problems but he has still done enough to impress his temporary employers, who may be interested in convincing him to remain for another year at least.

Grujic was not often given much playing opportunities at Liverpool prior to his loan move and he has admitted that he is not really fancying a return to Anfield at the moment.

“I feel very comfortable in Berlin. Hertha gave me a great opportunity to play in the Bundesliga,” Grujic told Bild.

“I’m still pretty young, for me this time at Hertha – with the exception of injuries – has been brilliant so far to show my qualities.

“But, ultimately, I cannot decide. But, 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. And that’s only possible if you play every game.”
