His performance also saw him receive praise from Bayern Munich great Owen Hargreaves, who praised the Serbian but suggested he might not get into Klopp’s side. 

‘He’s a good player,’ Hargreaves said. ‘He’s done the right thing getting some experience. Can play in multiple positions. Physically, he’s a really good size. 

‘Technically, good player as well so I think he’s got a big future. Difficult to get into that Liverpool team, though, as they’re so blessed with so much depth.’
