Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic has claimed that the Premier League hasn’t yet seen him at his best and promises next season will be different, reports the Liverpool Echo.
The 20-year-old spent time on loan at Red Star Belgrade last season, after joining the Reds under boss Jurgen Klopp in the January transfer window – and he is now adapting to life at Merseyside.
The Serbia international has spoken out saying it has been difficult to adapt to the league but hasn’t yet given up hope, and is working hard before his return to the top flight.
Having only 12 minutes under his belt for Liverpool, the midfielder still seems confident that next season will be a different tale and will be an important part of the squad.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, he said: “The running and exercises are harder and I’m still learning, but I’m sure I will adapt. I’m proud that I can work with the staff here and it will be OK.
“For the first season I just want to learn from these guys. I have the big pleasure of playing with some of the best footballers in the world. I want to get some minutes and games to try and improve myself for the future. I think next season will be the one where I show what I can do.”
Liverpool currently see themselves sit sixth in the Premier League with seven points before they travel to London to face Chelsea on Friday evening.
