On-loan Fenerbahçe winger Lazar Markovic has revealed that he had no problem with former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers but stated that he was left in the dark about his future at the club.

Markovic had an interview which was published in the latest edition of the Fenerbahçe magazine were he claimed that Rodgers began to act erratically towards him.

“I had no problem with Brendan Rodgers and we had a bond until for some reason that remains a mystery to me he changed,” Markovic said.

“He stopped playing me and then at the start of the season he did not even include me in the squad and nobody explained to me what was going on or what his plans were so I decided to leave.”

The Serbian international joined Liverpool on a £17.5 million transfer fee from Benfica under the stewardship of Brendan Rodgers but failed to settle in and was played out of position for most of his time spent at the club.

The young winger scored three times and made one assist in 34 appearances for the Reds last season in all competitions.

Markovic has however, managed to establish himself as a first team regular at Fenerbahçe who he joined on a loan move over the summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old winger has two goals and three assists in 19 appearances for the Yellow Canaries this season and featured in the Istanbul giants last seven league games.

Markovic was rumoured to be on his way back to Liverpool this January but will be staying in Turkey until the end of the season.
