Marko Grujic is determined to continue showcasing his talents during pre-season after lighting up Liverpool’s friendly win over Tranmere Rovers with a superb long-range strike.
Midfielder Grujic scored the visitors’ second goal at Prenton Park in some style as the Reds began their warm-up games for 2017-18 with a comfortable 4-0 victory.
After collecting a pass from Sheyi Ojo, the 21-year-old dipped inside onto his right foot and sent a low, curling effort into the bottom corner from 25 yards.
Grujic netted three times during pre-season a year ago but then saw his first campaign at Anfield interrupted by injury.
However, the No.16 feels he can stake his claim for a prominent role in Jürgen Klopp’s plans in the season ahead and has his sights set on impressing against Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium this evening – a game you can watch live on LFCTV and LFCTV GO.
“It was a very nice victory for us and the first game of the new season. I’m happy to get a goal again in our first match and for us it was most important to give each player 45 minutes to get more fit,” Grujic told Liverpoolfc.com, following the match at Tranmere.
