“Deserves the Sakho treatment” – fans are furious with this Liverpool starter

Dejan Lovren

Dejan Lovren has revealed that he played through pain at the World Cup to help Croatia to the final and supporters have understandably reacted poorly on social media.

While he’s not everyone’s cup of tea, the former Southampton defender has been in great form for the last nine months but his recent actions could see him face stern consequences from the club.

Lovren revealed: “I cannot train at all because of stomach muscle issues. I am suffering a lot of pain and will see a specialist doctor in the Netherlands.

“When did I start to feel it? I felt it during the World Cup. I played with pain and those three games killed me. But who wouldn’t play for Croatia at such a big tournament!

“Of course, they [Liverpool] are not happy. I haven’t trained since I returned from holiday. I can’t.”

Fans on social media are furious as they wonder if he didn’t tell the club before the end of the transfer window to ensure that a replacement wasn’t brought in, jeopardising his place in the starting XI.

While it’s all speculation at this point, the Croatian may have put Liverpool’s season at risk by not informing the club sooner.

Just like you, I am a hugely passionate Liverpool supporter. I started Rousing the Kop in January 2015 and since then it has grown tremendously and has even been nominated as 'Best New Football Blog' in the Football Blogging Awards.


  1. Not the wisest decision by Lovren. Once he is fit forgive him and let’s move foward after he is given a stern warning
