A number of Liverpool fans have been reacting to Marko Grujic’s playacting for Porto against Juventus, on a memorable night for the on-loan Reds star.
The Serbia international was loaned out to the Portuguese giants last October, with Jurgen Klopp struggling to guarantee him regular playing time.
Grujic found himself behind a host of top players in the midfield pecking order at Anfield, including the likes of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum, Thiago and Naby Keita.
The 24-year-old has made 13 Primeira Liga appearances this season, and while Liverpool supporters may not have seen him in action much, they got to witness his education in the dark arts on Tuesday night.
Does Grujic have a future at Liverpool?
Grujic was introduced as a late substitute in Porto’s extraordinary Champions League clash with Juventus, as Sergio Conceicao’s side progressed in thrilling fashion, losing 3-2 on the night but going through on away goals.
One moment from the Liverpool loanee caught the eye, as he went to ground in order to waste time, before sneakily looking up towards the referee and smiling.
