Liverpool fans take to Twitter to slam club for Markovic debacle

Liverpool fans have been given a reminder of their club’s blunder on Lazar Markovic today, as James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo has written about the winger’s current situation. The Serbian wide man could be leaving the club this month, yet with just two weeks of the window left and six months on his contract, the chances are he’ll stay.

Pearce reports that the winger is on a big money, reportedly around £50,000 per week. When you consider that the 24-year-old was also signed for £20 millionthe money starts to add up. If he is to see out his Anfield contract then he will have pocketed a tidy £13 million in wages from the club, add that to his original transfer fee and you have enough money to cover Roberto Firmino’s transfer fee of £29 million and have money to spare.

The money that has been wasted on Markovic is not something that the Kopites want to hear about though. The Serbian is one of the biggest flops in recent memory at the club, especially considering the excitement when he signed as he was fresh off the back of a domestic treble with Benfica in a season where he bagged seven goals and five assists in all competitions from his position out on the wing.

You can read the Reds’ thoughts on Markovic here:

The Kopites are gutted that they’ve managed to lose out so badly on Markovic, and will just hope they can avoid making the same mistake again after the 24-year-old has gone.
