Hertha Berlin coach Covic: Grujic makes the team and every player better

New Hertha Berlin coach Ante Covic is delighted with their deal for Marko Grujic.

The Liverpool midfielder returns to Hertha for a second season on-loan for a fee of €2m. They will also cover his €2m salary.

Covic says: "Marko is a player who always wants the ball and that is incredibly important.

"He makes the team and every single player better. The fact that he plays a second year with us, he does not have to get used to the environment and the team like usual.

"He knows everything, that will make him even stronger."
