Just over two years ago it was confirmed that Marko Grujic would be joining Liverpool from Red Star Belgrade.

The young midfielder returned to his former club for the rest of that season and then made the trip to English football.

There was much excitement around the move, with Grujic being very highly rated in Serbia, but things haven’t gone to plan.

Down to fitness, form and manager selections, Grujic wasn’t able to show any real signs of being able to breakthrough into Jurgen Klopp’s plans, and he moved on loan to Cardiff City in January.

In the Serbia senior squad for the friendlies against Nigeria and Morrocco, Grujic has been asked about his club situation.

Serbian newspaper Alo! quote the Liverpool owned player as saying: “The transfer from Liverpool to Cardiff was the right choice. We have a chance to rise to the Premier League and I believe we will use it.

“Our competitor is Fulham, for which Aleksandar Mitrovic is brilliant and I want him to score goals, but for their defence to concede too. The national team would have a good attacker, and Cardiff would go to a higher ranking.”

With Grujic’s words focused on Cardiff City and promotion to the Premier League, rather than mentioning his Liverpool status at all, it could be a hint that he sees his medium term future in Wales.
