Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic has declared that he has made changes to his training routine while on loan at Hertha Berlin and opened up on how the Merseyside Reds keep in regular contact with him.
Marko Grujic, who joined Premier League side Liverpool in January 2016 as Jurgen Klopp’s first signing, extended his loan agreement with Hertha Berlin this summer after having impressed during his initial one-year contract the last term.
With his eyes on gaining maximum experience under his belt and developing as a player in Germany, the 23-year-old midfielder believes he still has a lot to learn but feels age is on his side.
Marko Grujic has revealed that he has made tweaks to his training programme while admitting that he used to focus only on his legs previously.
“I’m still a young player at 23, there are some ups and downs, and I still have a lot to learn”, Grujic told German daily the Berliner Morgenpost.
“But I’ve also changed my training a bit, sometimes I used to do too much for my legs in the gym and was not fresh enough in the games.”
Asked if he has regular communication with Liverpool manager Klopp, Grujic revealed that it is the Reds’ loan boss who provides him with consistent feedback.
“Not often [I hear from Klopp]. Liverpool play many games and have loaned many players.”
“But there is someone responsible who looks after the loanees, keeps in touch and gives feedback. We telephone after every game.”
Marko Grujic has started all of Hertha Berlin’s matches this season, except for their last league match versus RB Leipzig.
