MARKO Grujic made his home debut when he came on as a 74th minute substitution in Saturday’s 5-1 victory over Hull, and insists he is looking to build on his first taste of Anfield.
The Serbian — who was signed by the club in January before being loaned back to Red Star Belgrade for the remainder of the 2015/16 season — said he had heard about the atmosphere prior to his move to the club, but claims it was special to witness it out on the pitch.
He told Liverpoolfc.com: “Every player and the people in the stadium enjoyed the game.
“It’s interesting when you come on from the bench, it’s a nice feeling. It was my first game at Anfield and the feeling was incredible.
“I heard [about the atmosphere] and watched some games before I signed.
“The feeling is nice. I will try to keep working hard.”
Jürgen Klopp’s side dominated Hull from start to finish, answering any questions prior to the game about their ability to beat the league’s lesser teams, making it four wins in a row in all competitions for the Reds.
“It was a nice game for everyone. We played very well and scored three goals in the first half, and then we continued the same in the second half.
“But we conceded one goal and we will try to improve on those moments from set-pieces. That’s what we can improve.
“The game was very good and I was happy to get some more minutes, it’s nice to be part of it.”
Grujic understands that he will need to work hard to force his way into the manager’s plans, given the team’s current form, but he is more than up for the challenge having made his first competitive start last week against Derby in the League Cup.
He added: “All of the players in my position, and other positions, are playing very well.
“We have had good results to start the season. We had some hard matches away. We will be better from week to week — that’s the most important thing.
“I will try to show my skills in training to get more minutes in the Premier League.”
