Marko Grujic may have to answer to goalkeeper Adrian, after the Serbian shamed his Liverpool team-mate on social media. The midfielder joined Porto on a season-long loan earlier this week as he looks to get some game time under his belt in Portugal.
The 24-year-old has spent the past two campaigns on loan at Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga and was linked with a permanent switch to Borussia Monchengladbach earlier this summer.
He looked desisted to join Werder Bremen on loan on deadline day, before a deal collapsed.
Grujic played in both of Liverpool’s Carabao Cup matches this season against Lincoln and Arsenal before Porto came calling.
Now the Reds star could have landed himself in trouble, after comments shaming Adrian emerged on a social media post.
Grujic, whose Instagram account was marked with a blue tick, could be seen discussing his Fantasy Premier League team following Liverpool’s catastrophic 7-2 defeat at Aston Villa.
He detailed how he’d taken hat-trick hero Ollie Watkins out of his team, before making a big claim about Adrian.
“The first couple of games the man [Watkins] is nowhere to be found, I impatiently decided to move him into fantasy, the rest is history,” he said.
Before later replying: “Probably ended Adrian’s career at lfc.”
Grujic’s second comment was marked with an excited emoji, as if to suggest he would be pleased to see the back of Adrian.
The Spaniard was at fault for the opening goal before shipping six more at Villa Park.
Given that Grujic has lined up alongside Adrian in recent matches, Klopp is unlikely to be best pleased.
Grujic is already fighting for his future at the club and his loan to Porto keeps his first-team hopes alive.
Liverpool’s elite development coach Vitor Matos believes the Primeira Liga club are getting a top player.
