Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has given Lazar Markovic hope that he may have a future at the club.
The Serbian international returned from his spell with Sporting Lisbon this week before quickly completing a loan switch to Hull City.
He made his debut off the bench against Manchester United in Hull’s 2-1 win in the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final and provided an assist for their winning goal.
That saw many fans question why he wasn’t brought back into Klopp’s squad given the absence of Sadio Mane and the alternatives to the Senegalese international.
And after looking like he was running out of time as a Liverpool player, Klopp has said that he could play his way back into the reckoning.
“He’s still got a contract, so why should I say there’s no chance for Lazar Markovic?” he said.
“If he plays really well at Hull, then why not? He’s still a young boy.
“We all know we struggled because of a few injuries, in the wrong moment.
“If he can stay fit, and help Hull, for us it’s easier to look than at what he was doing in Portugal.” he finished.
