Markovic was signed by Brendan Rodgers in a £20million deal from Benfica in 2014 1 Thank you for making such a great effort for trying to get me back in the club. However, money was not the issue !!!!! Good luck in the future 💜 @rscanderlecht— Lazar Marković (@LMarkec50) September 3, 2018Markovic has once again not been included in Liverpool’s Premier League squad and has no chance of playing under manager Jurgen Klopp this season.It means he faces another four months in the wilderness, with even playing for the under-23s unlikely, until the window reopens in January. After spending the second half of last season on loan at Anderlecht, the 24-year-old appeared set to return to the Belgian club in a permanent transfer this summer after a cut-price £2.9million fee was agreed.However, despite a three-year contract being offered, the move collapsed and led to Anderlecht’s manager Hein Vanhaezebrouck claiming it was the player’s fault.“Our president and sports director did everything to convince Markovic,” he told Belgian media.“They waited until Liverpool lowered the price. They almost did a crazy effort for the player, but it wasn’t enough. It’s his own fault that the deal fell through.”But Markovic, who is out of contract with Liverpool next summer following unremarkable loan spells at Fenerbahce, Sporting Lisbon and Hull, has insisted that is not the truth. Liverpool’s out-of-favour winger Lazar Markovic has hit back at suggestions his deadline day move to Anderlecht fell through over wage demands.The Serbia international has not played for the Premier League club since May 2015 and was expected to leave Anfield in a permanent deal this summer.
