Dejan Lovren Says He's One Of The Best Defenders In The World

Grant SmithJul 13, 2018

"Since I came in, maybe Dejan made three or four mistakes, two of them in the Tottenham game, maybe one in a Champions League game past year".

Reaching the final caps a hugely impressive 2018 for Lovren, who came through a hard run of form for Liverpool to play a key part in reaching the UEFA Champions League final in May. "I don't know exactly what happened before I came in", the manager told Liverpoolfc.com.

The England central defender has seen his stock rise no end after a magnificent World Cup where his performances have helped his country to the last four of the tournament. I'm really happy for him.

And after playing a key role in Croatia's 2-1 semi-final win over England, the Liverpool centre-back gave a passionate post-match interview and fired back at his critics.

"[In Croatia] we went through a lot of s***, war, all these things and even now the situation is not the best".

"It was a really odd feeling".

"It's something special for me", Lovren said regarding the feat.

Monaco keeper Subasic is understood to have missed training as a precaution, so as not to aggravate his problematic hamstring, while Lovren's unspecified injury is not thought to be serious enough to keep him out of the semi-final. "In extra-time we showed we are still able with the fatigue to play our game". England controlled the game more or less, Croatia looked exhausted in that part of the game - and then they scored a goal and got a real push. The country is small but all the players are pretty big. Now with my national team we are in the final. It's impressive what they are doing.

Several positions remain problematic for the Reds and if they are serious about toppling current champions Manchester City next season they must ensure that the right players are added to the squad this summer.

"After 20 years, people will remember us, not only the '98 team".
