Lazar Markovic has pointed the finger at Brendan Rodgers for ruining his stint at Anfield.
The Serbian winger was signed by the former-manager for £20million, but one year later, he shipped him out on loan to Turkish side Fenerbahce.
The 21-year-old managed to make 34 appearances for the Reds during his debut season in the Premier League, but was then told by Rodgers that he wasn’t in his plans for the forthcoming season.
Rodgers then agreed to loan him out to Fenerbahce for the 2016/2017 season, just several weeks before the Northern Irishman lost his job.
Speaking about his failed stint at Liverpool, Markovic has blamed Rodgers for that and believes a breakdown in communications between the two was the major factor.
“I had no problem with Brendan Rodgers and we had a bond until, for some reason that remains a mystery to me, he changed,” he reportedly told Turkish newspaper Fanatik.
“He stopped playing me and then at the start of the season he didn’t even include me in the squad, and nobody explained to me what was going on or what his plans were, so I decided to leave.”
