Klopp backs Lovren comments

first_imgAfter beating England at the semi-final stage, Dejan Lovren called himself “one of the best defenders in the world”. His coach at Liverpool agrees, even though the centre-back didn’t perform so well last season.For many, Jurgen Klopp backing Lovren comments seems strange, as the Croatian didn’t shine playing for Liverpool last season.The Anfield manager agrees in some degree with the self-compliment but admits someone else other the Lovren should be saying that: “It would be better if somebody else would say that! But actually, he’s right”, he said, as stated in Sportslens.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“They are offensive in the midfield with Rakitic, Brozovic, Modric, so somebody needs to fix all that.

They don’t have world-class full-backs, but in the end they don’t concede”, he continued, forgetting Croatia conceded five goals at the World Cup.“He played a really good World Cup, but to do it consistently is more important. We will work together for a long time, so I will have the opportunity to help him. Next time I will say it!”last_img
