Marko: "I can't wait to start this adventure"
Newest Bluebirds recruit Marko Grujić spoke exclusively to iFollow Cardiff City following the completion of his loan move from Liverpool on Wednesday.
And in his first interview as a Bluebird, Marko spoke of the reasons behind making a move from Merseyside to South Wales for the rest of the campaign.
“This is a good opportunity for me, to play in a club that will be fighting until the end to get in to the Premier League,” said Marko.
“To work with a manager like Neil Warnock is something I’m looking forward to. I’ve heard good things about him and when he spoke to me he said some good things about me and that I had a chance to play as part of his squad.”
City next head to Hillsborough following Tuesday night’s third round replay defeat of Mansfield Town.
And following Neil Warnock’s post-match comments, the squad know that all focus must be on this key test before they start to think about their upcoming clash with Manchester City.
It’s a sentiment that Marko clearly adheres to as he links up with his new team-mates ahead of the trip to Yorkshire.
“I’m looking forward to Saturday and the rest of the season,” he continued. “I want to make the Cardiff City fans happy and look forward to playing in front of them. I’ve seen the team play a couple of times so I know what to expect.”
Grujić has made a total of 14 first-team appearances for Liverpool in the Premier League, Champions League and Carabao Cup, since joining from Red Star Belgrade in January 2016.
But as for his key qualities, the 1.9m midfielder modestly replied: “I like other people to talk about my qualities, rather than myself!
“But I can play across midfield and like to help in defence and attack. This is a strong team but I’m going to try my best to add something.
“I can’t wait to start this adventure. It’s really exciting.”
