Liverpool have announced that summer signing Lazar Markovic will wear the number 50 shirt at Anfield.

Markovic joined Liverpool from Benfica for £20m earlier this summer and wore the number 50 shirt during his time at the Portuguese giants.

The winger also wore the number 50 shirt at his first club in football, Serbian giants Partizan Belgrade.

Liverpool announced today: "Summer signing Lazar Markovic has selected the No.50 shirt to wear at Liverpool."


The number 50 shirt was worn by Cameron Brannagan at Anfield, but the youngster has agreed to surrender it to Markovic.


Brannagan will now wear number 32.

Markovic, who joined Liverpool in July, missed the club's 2-1 Premier League opening win over Southampton at the weekend.
