Lazar Markovic

Lazar Marković
Lazar Marković is a Serbian professional footballer who plays for English club Liverpool and the Serbia national team as a winger. He was described by Andrea Stramaccioni as a player with exceptional qualities and impressive acceleration.

Born: March 2, 1994 (age 20), Čačak, Serbia
Height: 5′ 9″ (1.75 m)
Weight: 146 lbs (66 kg)
Career start: 2011
Current teams: Liverpool F.C. (#50 / Forward), Serbia national football team (Forward)

Markovic signed for Serbian football giants Partizan Belgrade at the age of 12 as part of their acclaimed Youth School Belin academy.

If their coaching ability is anything to go by, then Liverpool fans can rest easy. Partizan have produced the likes of Manchester City duo Stevan Jovetic and Matija Nastasic in recent years.

Liverpool had been monitoring Serbian winger Lazar Marković for a while. Even though his country’s failure to qualify for the 2014 World Cup finals meant that nothing was likely to happen until that tournament was in its final stages while the eyes of the world were focused on Brazil, it wasn’t a big surprise when his signing was confirmed despite other clubs also showing an interest. 

Markovic joined Liverpool from Benfica for £20million on July 16 Brendan Rodgers said: You only need to see the way Markovic carries himself when he has had the ball in the small-sided games that Rodgers puts on at the end of each session to realise why Rodgers was so eager for Liverpool to trigger his £20million release clause and bring him from Benfica.

Nimble and skilful, blessed with a change of gear and polished technique, Markovic has been just as impressive off the field, showing courtesy and respect to all at his new club. When Rodgers talks about players being “the right profile” for Liverpool, Markovic is a fine example of what he means.
