Hi eds was wondering what's the latest update on markovic is he still looking to leave or will he stay and be part of klipperty's plans?

{Ed001's Note - he is likely to leave. Well if we can find someone to buy him.}

Is that the right decision Ed, in your view? I think he should be given an opportunity as there were flashes of skill and quality, even when Brendened.

{Ed001's Note - we have Mane for his role now, Mane is a better player, so there really is no place for him to be honest.}

I for one hope Klopp has a good look at him through pre-season. Everyone thought he had lots of potential when he came in and the poor guy then played most games as a wing back .

Of course if he wants out that is different, but he's still young and it would be good to see him get a chance in his proper position.

I didn't watch him at all last season, so can't comment on how he played while on loan, but I think he has a lot of potential and I would give him another chance. Skilful, pacey and knows where the net is.

looks like the kid is off then unless he really does super well I mean super well.

Lazar can't be that keen on leaving as he's reported back to training early. Speaks volumes for his mentality in my opinion. Could still serve a purpose in the squad for me. One of those players ruined by Brandan. If anyone could resurrect his career its Klopp. Marko can play either wing so switch him opposite Mane and we have two very capable and quick wingers. Plus Ojo could learn along side of them and aid his development while playing the cup games.

Natural poolie, LFC already have a player named Coutinho who will play on the opposite wing to Mane so that kinda leaves Marko out in the cold. Its in the player's best interest to move on and find a club better suited for his development, as long as we get back what we paid for him.

Coutinho isn't a winger. He can play on the left if playing 3 cams but that is a very different role than a winger.

Markovic isn't some seasoned pro that will develop Ojo, he's a youngster with limited experience himself and if anything still needs time and guidance to develop himself. Also it doesn't really matter if Coutinho is a winger or not, we have 11 places on the pitch. If one of those can't be found for someone and they really want to be playing starting football then they are better off looking elsewhere. That isn't a dig at them because it is an admirable trait these days where players happily sit on their arse picking up inflated salaries. Last thought, if he can prove to Klopp that he should be one of the 14 players that can get on the park each match then good for him and let him stay and do that.

Marko has no future here and the Eds has said this repeatedly. He wants out and Fernebahce are open to keeping him and he enjoyed his time there before his injury. He was an unnecessary acquisition and is now paying the price of someone else's incompetence. I say, let him go and we move on.

Love how Mane and Coutinho are expected to play every league, cup and FA cup game without cover. Marko should be given his chance like anyone else willing to do their best.

We have plenty of cover. Lallana and Milner can/ do both play wide as well as the kids like Ojo and Kent. Markovic would be lucky to even make the bench most of the time and sitting in the stands isn't really going to benefit him. I'd personally rather see whatever limited minutes he does get going to Ojo.

Poolie got a fantastic point there. Lazar has breathtaking pace and is clever like Sterling. Not the typical winger who use the physique much into he game. He coildnalsonolay through the middle and is decent on goal. He just seems lightweight and always waiting for an injury to happen.
Would I keep him? I would, If no one pays a sum that is actually his value ( say about £10 mill )

We gave Ibe a full year with no success. Let's play Markovic on the wings for 3-4 games and see the progress on the player.

Don't get all the fuss about Markovic from some fans. He hasn't really done anything in Turkey.

I am not worried about how much we sell him for, just get rid. I rated the kid as a 17 year old in Serbia, he was rated one of the top kids in Europe. I think he's got all the talent but not the mentality/ bottle to get to the top and stay there. Good luck to the lad.

We have 38 league games, no European football and FA cup doesn't really start until league cup is almost over. I wouldn't say that is a hard season for players to be playing most of it. That only leaves a few games and we know we have to do something with the likes of Ojo and Ibe.

3-4 games? Not much of a chance. I'd sooner sell him now, the lad needs to get back playing regular football and I don't think we can offer that.
