Liverpool fans react to Marko Grujic’s Champions League display

A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Marko Grujic following his performance in the Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday.

And while the result was not ideal, it did appear that Grujic impressed plenty of Liverpool fans with his performance.

As shown by Whoscored, no player completed more dribbles than the midfielder. Meanwhile, he also won five aerial duels and three tackles.

It was not necessarily a show-stealing display from Grujic. However, it did prompt several Reds supporters to suggest that he should have a role to play at Anfield upon his return.

Some certainly believe that he is more than good enough to be a squad player, providing cover for the likes of Fabinho.

With that in mind, here is what some of the Liverpool fans were saying about Grujic following his Champions League display…
