Dejan Lovren has left Liverpool after playing for the Reds for six seasons. The central defender has joined Russian champions Zenit Sint-Petersburg on a deal that is reportedly worth €12m. The Croatian has made 185 appearances for Liverpool, scoring 8 goals since joining from Southampton.
Liverpool boss is sad Lovren has left the club. Another Liverpool legend who leaves the club, because he was absolutely a very, very important part of this team from the first day since I was in,” Klopp told the official website. “He played super games and scored one of the most important goals of our history in the 4-3 against Borussia Dortmund; a really wonderful moment to share.”
“He had so many good games. Yes, I think he will not like the Tottenham game when I took him off in the first half, but it is part of football and part of development – and he always came back. When he was fit, he was very, very, very often in the team. A great player and a great person.”
Always committed. Always passionate.
