To say Lazar Markovic's time at Liverpool has been a disappointment would be somewhat of an understatement.
After arriving at Anfield in 2014 for £20m, big things were expected of the Serbian winger, although for one reason or another the 24-year-old has failed to settle on Merseyside, resulting in 34 appearances and four loan spells in just four seasons for the Reds.
Following the collapse of a permanent move to Anderlecht on deadline day, Markovic has since been training with the Under-23 side after being deemed surplus to requirements for Jurgen Klopp's first team.
The Serb started their most recent game but couldn't help Liverpool's Under-23s avoid a 4-0 defeat away to Arsenal, with the performance of Markovic garnering plenty of criticism from fans on Twitter.
Here's how fans reacted:
Could have just stopped at "Lazar Markovic fails". We would have all understood. 😳— AJ (@iamnotshouting) September 22, 2018
Markovic. Utter and complete embarrassment. Stealing a living. 😡— Stephen Aintree (@StephenAintree) September 21, 2018
Markovic needs subbing off. Hes just walking around the pitch, and taking the place of one of the young players.— LFC (@xMCRx13) September 21, 2018
U23s very poor 2-0 down 26 mins v Arsenal away can't see why markovic is playing not showing the desire at all.— Andyk65 (@Ak65Andy) September 21, 2018
Some of Markovic's effort levels so far for the U23s have resembled a Sunday league player who got in at 5am and was eating a cold Maccies on his way to the pitch.— Henry Jackson (@HenryJackson87) September 21, 2018
It's safe to say that Markovic isn't the most popular figure around Anfield at the minute and with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, it appears that this will be his final season as a Liverpool player.
Jurgen Klopp's side has made a fabulous start to the season, winning all seven of their games in all competitions.
While the manager has praised his Reds' early season efforts, he's called for his team to become the "ugliest team" sides will face this season, with Klopp aiming to earn his first piece of silverware as Liverpool's manager come the end of the campaign.
