Marko Grujic became Jürgen Klopp's first signing as Liverpool manager after sealing a move from Red Star Belgrade on January 6, 2016.

The 19-year-old immediately returned to his boyhood Red Star on loan for the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign.

He made quite the impression during his first pre-season with the Reds, scoring a brilliant header in a 4-0 friendly win over Barcelona at Wembley in August 2016.

The midfielder made his competitive Liverpool debut in the same month when he came on as a second-half substitute away at Burnley.

His first start for the club would arrive in that September as he played the entirety of a 3-0 win over Derby County in the third round of the League Cup.

Injury limited Grujic to just eight appearances during his first season on Merseyside as Liverpool secured a top-four finish in the Premier League.

In January 2018, he joined Championship side Cardiff City on loan until the end of the season and played a big role in helping Neil Warnock's side achieve promotion to the top flight.

He signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool in August 2018 before joining Hertha BSC on a season-long loan deal.

The Serbia international was highly regarded during his time in the Bundesliga, netting five goals in 23 appearances.
