Hertha Berlin midfielder Grujic confident of future with Liverpool

Hertha Berlin midfielder Marko Grujic believes he has a future with Liverpool.

The 23-year-old has returned to the German capital for a second consecutive season as he prepares to join Liverpool's first team come 2020/21.

"It's not easy to become a part of the Liverpool squad, I can see myself in the red shirt but I have to become more experienced before I can wear it again," Grujic told the Liverpool Echo.

“I want to improve my physical performance and take my concentration to another level. I want to be ready for Liverpool so I will have a chance to get into the team."

Despite offers from Atalanta, Brighton and Eintracht Frankfurt, Grujic stayed at the Olympiastadion - revealing Jurgen Klopp was the driving force behind the decision.

He said: “He said that it would be a great opportunity for me to improve my development. The Bundesliga is one of the strongest leagues in the world and Hertha BSC is a big club.

“It is very important for me to play regularly right now and [Klopp] told me to fight for my place in the team."
