Marko Grujic scored his first goal on Liverpool debut in a pre-season friendly against Fleetwood Town.
It took Liverpool’s new signing just 5 minutes to find himself on the scoresheet for his new employers, as he calmly slotted home a pass played by left-back Alberto Moreno. Signed just for a reported fee of £5.1 million, the Serbian showed why he was worth every penny, and gave the Liverpool fans plenty to be optimistic about going into the 2016/17 campaign. He also registered an assist, putting in an impressive all-round performance for the Reds.
Here’s how Twitter saw the 20-year-old’s club debut:

So yeah, Marko Grujic looked a beast there. Mane and Moreno linking well too! #LFC

HT 1-0 Liverpool. Grujic excellent, Moreno good, Mane lively. Expecting changes at the break of course.

HT: 1-0 to #LFC, who should be further in front. Grujic with the goal and he’s been the best player on the field by a country mile.

I’m happy that Liverpool fans are getting to see just how big and strong Marko Grujic is. The kid is a bully. Great debut so far.

Liverpool fans were of the opinion that a price of £5 million was a bargain for the player:
Honestly it looks like Grujic for £5m is an absolute steal. His physical presence and confidence is impressive. #lfc

Have a feeling that £5.1 million for Marko Grujic is going to be a bargain.

I don’t think you understand
He’s literally a tank
Only took 5 mil out of our bank

Bought Grujic for 5 million. Klopp signing’esque

so far from what I’ve seen, Grujic looks an absolute steal at around £4million, he’s bossed the first half #LFC

And others saw him as an upgrade to Manchester United target Paul Pogba:
Don’t wanna get too carried away but if Pogba is worth 100mill then Grujic is worth 300!!!!!
— LFC News (@LFCTransferNRS) July 13, 2016
GRUJIC ALREADY BETTER THAN POGBA
— SA (@VintageCoutinho) July 13, 2016
Grujic just done more in 45 minutes than Pogba done in the whole of the Euros.
Haters will say it’s only Fleetwood.

Take Marko Grujic, take away his goals, passing, defensive ability, heading, consistency and his decent hair. That’s Paul Pogba.

Paul Pogba is just a French Marko Grujic
