Liverpool defender Lovren: I’m happy playing alongside Van Dijk


Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren is happy with his relationship with Virgil van Dijk.

After arriving from Southampton for a club-record £75m fee, van Dijk has helped solidify a previously leaky Reds defence.

“It is always good to hear some positive things but at the end, if the manager chooses someone else then you are disappointed,” said Lovren.

“I think we did quite well, me and him in the last couple of games when we played. We understood each other quite well and hopefully, we can do it also in the future like that.

“I said many times I don’t know one player who doesn’t make a mistake, especially a defender and especially how we play at Liverpool.

“We play really offensive football and sometimes you are one against one against top strikers and top strikers. They need just one chance from 10 and if they score then they will blame you or someone else.

“I had many times these wrong decisions that I made, sometimes I can accept it sometimes not because football is like that – but in the end, it depends on yourself and whether you are ready to move on or not.”
