'Amazing': Boss reveals 7 reasons why 'fantastic' powerhouse is 'perfect' signing for Liverpool

Earlier this week, Marko Grujic became Jurgen Klopp's first signing for Liverpool, but what can Reds fans expect from the 19-year old midfielder, who cost the club £5.1m?

Speaking to the official Liverpool FC website, Serbia youth team manager Veljko Paunovic claimed that Grujic is a 'perfect fit' for Liverpool, and hailed the youngster's 'amazing' progress over the last three years.

Paunovic also offered 8 reasons why Grujic will be a top signing for Liverpool:

* He has 'huge potential and huge talent', and personality is 'very aligned with the values of Liverpool'.

* Grujic knows how to 'adapt and behave' in order to become a 'very successful Liverpool player'.

* He is 'always open minded'; is always 'asking questions', and desperately 'wants to learn' in every training session.

* Grujic is 'very technical', with 'great control', and he also has the 'capacity to score goals and make assists'.

* He can 'keep the ball' and 'play the required pass' or even 'carry the ball from box-to-box'.

* Grujic is 'very offensive-minded' and is capable of 'taking on a couple of players and then finishing'.

* His attitude in training is 'fantastic', and he is always one of the 'best players in every session'.

Wow. Grucic can 'keep the ball', pass to a team-mate, and - are you ready for this - actually RUN with the ball. Absolutely flabbergasting. I think need to lie down and recover.

But seriously - this all sounds good, but with the greatest respect, it means nothing. Actions speak louder than words, and in 7-8 months, we'll see if Grujic can actually cut it in the Premier League.

Bev is having her bone marrow transplant today (Wed19th April). It's a big operation, and she'll be on life support for the duration. The recovery process is going to be very tough and unfortunately carries a great deal of risk with regards to infection, which could be life threatening due to the process requiring her immune system to have been purposefully wiped out beforehand (so that it doesn't f!ght against/reject the transplant). Sadly, the preparation treatment has adversely affected her heart as well and currently it is beating much lower than it should be so we have to hope that soon starts to recover as well. More HERE.
