Marko Grujic: This is why I chose Liverpool…

Marko Grujic has revealed his reasons for joining the Liverpool Football Club.

The highly-rated Serbian midfielder signed with the Reds in January 2016 before spending the remainder of the 2015/16 season with Red Star Belgrade.

Grujic, 20, had interest from such clubs as Chelsea, Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan but opted to sign with Liverpool due to their similarities with his now former beloved club.

"Red Star is a very, very big club, like Liverpool," said Grujic in the latest edition of the official Liverpool magazine.

"But both clubs are like family, and that's why I chose to join Liverpool.

"I think there is the same harmony between club and fans and already everywhere that I've been around the city I just feel how Liverpool is such a big club.

"All around the world people support Liverpool, that really struck me on the summer tour, and there is incredible harmony between fans and players."

Grujic made his Premier League debut against Burnley last month after impressing Jurgen Klopp during pre-season.
