Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has lavished praise on summer signing Lazar Markovic, who is steadily improving after a difficult start to the season.
The £20m man, who moved to Anfield from Benfica, has struggled to hold down a regular starting place in the team so far this season, and received a costly red card against Basel as we exited the Champions League this month.
However, he looked impressive during his brief cameo against the Swiss side, and continued that form with a match winning performance against Bournemouth in mid-week, when he scored his first goal for the club.
“I thought it was a great finish. I thought he was excellent in a role where we asked different tactical elements from him,” said Rodgers – who was quoted by the Daily Mail – of Markovic’s goal.
