To Russia with Lov

Probably the millionth time I’ve used this sub heading but I’m not going to stop until I stop being smug about it.

Liverpool sold Dejan Lovren to Zenit over the summer, raking in £10.9m for the defender.

The 31-year-old had dropped to fourth choice in the pecking order at Anfield, given that he is a World Cup finalist he deserved to be playing more regularly somewhere.

He may have frustrated us at times over the years but he still put in some match winning performances and we’ll never forget his winner against Borussia Dortmund.

Lovren goal for Zenit

This week Dejan Lovren scored a wonder goal for Zenit.

The Croatian thumped one in from what must have been at least thirty yards, ricocheting in off the post and goalkeeper.

Cruelly, the goal has been deemed an own goal but we’ll be giving it to Degsy.

The goal brought his side level at 1-1 with Club Brugge, the visiting Belgian side went on to net a winner in the 93rd minute.

Twitter reacts to Lovren goal

Some fans were relieved he finally netted one, he enraged us with these optimistic efforts over the years.

Some didn’t give him the credit he deserved.

It was some strike, though.

And of course, there were calls for his return.
