Markovic injured during Serbia’s 1-1 draw against Armenia last night.
Liverpool have been dealt yet another injury blow as a result of international football, with the Mail reporting that winger Lazar Markovic picked up a muscle problem during Serbia’s 1-1 Euro 2016 qualifying draw at Armenia yesterday evening.
Markovic has endured a frustrating start to life at Anfield as he has taken his time to adapt to English football and any length of time spent on the sidelines as a result of this latest setback would be a huge blow to the talented young winger and his manager Brendan Rodgers.
The extent of Markovic’s injury is not yet known, but it seems unlikely that he will be involved with Serbia for the rest of the international break, potentially returning to Liverpool for treatment on whatever the issue that forced him off during the first half in Yerevan is.
It is not the first time this season that Liverpool have been stung by a player picking up an injury on international duty – striker Daniel Sturridge is yet to return to first team action for the Reds after picking up a knock whilst on England duty a month ago that led to a war of words between the two camps over whether the Three Lions had done enough to protect Sturridge’s fitness.
