Markovic has become crucial to Brendan Rodgers’ new 3-4-3 system.
Liverpool midfielder Lazar Markovic took to Twitter to sarcastically mock UEFA’s decision to hand him a four-match European ban following his red card against Basle in December.
Markovic was sent off in Liverpool’s last Champions League group game for what seemed an innocuous incident. The Serbian’s fingertips skimmed the nose of Behrang Safari, who reacted theatrically.
The Reds were awaiting UEFA’s decision this morning ahead of their Europa League clash against Besiktas and the outcome certainly surprised the Serbian.

If Liverpool do not progress beyond the last sixteen of the UEFA Europa League, Markovic will not feature in the competition again this season.
