On-loan Liverpool forward makes Fenerbahce debut

Lazar Markovic made his Fenerbahçe debut today in the 1-0 victory over Kasımpaşa at the Recep Tayyip Erdoğan stadium.

The on-loan forward was brought on for Robin van Persie on 61 minutes and played the last half an hour for the Yellow Canaries.

Fenerbahçe moved into first place in the Turkish Super League on 10 points after four games following the win.


The Istanbul giants remain unbeaten this season with the best defensive record having conceded just two goals.

Markovic joined the Reds on a £20 million transfer from Benfica last season and still has another four-years left remaining on his contract with the Premier League giants.

The Serbian international is likely to be guaranteed more playing time at the Istanbul giants following the sale of striker Moussa Sow to UAE side Al Ahli for a club record £15 million.

Fenerbahçe take on 15th placed Bursaspor next week at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium.
