Lazar Markovic has been demoted to train with the U23 Liverpool squad, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The Serbian worked with Neil Critchley’s team in Kirkby, as per the report, and participated in a closed-door friendly against Crewe Alexandra.
The 24-year-old was close to joining Anderlecht on deadline day but the deal failed as the player could not finalize personal terms. as per the Liverpool Echo.
The Serbian has failed to live up to the hype, following his move from Benfica and it will be a miracle if we can ship him out before the season ends.
A number of Liverpool supporters weren’t pleased with the current scenario and here are some reactions from Twitter.
We’ve wasted the kids time and progress for 4yrs#ynwa tho

Honestly in the U23’s he’s taking up a spot which an under 19’s player could take.

Had the chance to leave the club and get his professional career up and running, but couldn’t agree on personal terms. He’s enjoying the cash he’s earning at Liverpool. Knowing very well he wasn’t going to get any game time. His choice

Again!? Same every season. Should’ve jus cancelled his contract & let him be a free agent.
