Istanbul – Lady Luck seemed reluctant to stop at Dejan Lovren since his arrival at Liverpool this season. Failure penalty against Besiktas which makes the Reds knocked increasingly bleak make his career at the club.
Lovren imported from Southampton last summer after a long negotiation. Liverpool deserve just ask Lovren immediately appear okay considering they pay a premium that is 20 million pounds, which makes it the most expensive defender in the Premier League transfer window.
Initially going pretty well for Lovren when he continued to be the primary choice in the back, accompanied Martin Skrtel as a duet central defender. But their Lovren even make disease in defense that has existed since last season, so the more severe.
From game to game Lovren unable to prove the high prices until the end blunder against Manchester United made the Croatian defender had to sit on the bench. Noted Squawka, defender Lovren is most people make mistakes lead to a goal in the top five European leagues this season, which is five times.
Since wearing a 3-4-3 formation. Rodgers entrust trio back line to Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho, and Emre Can in which the decision was sweet fruit. Liverpool goal of 18 matches in all competitions last 10 games and conceded only clean sheet Simon Mignolet number jumped to 10 games.
Lovren, long inhabit the bench, just got a chance to return to the first team when a hip injury forced Sakho absent in the last two games, namely against Southampton and Besiktas.
In the game contra Besiktas, Lovren again failed to prove that he deserves a top choice Rodgers. Several times the 25-year-old defender made a mistake bait so that the peak is currently fifth executor Liverpool in round-tosan tos.
Should make a goal to defend Liverpool in that phase, instead Lovren kick flew high over the bar and the Reds were eventually knocked out in the last 32 of the Europa League after a 4-5 defeat of Besiktas. Aggregates in 120 minutes of the game was 1-1 after Besiktas likened in the 72nd minute through Tolgay Arslan.
Lovren probably will increasingly be at the mercy of the media, especially the back contrived Liverpool fans disappointed by his performance. However Rodgers instead defend the player.
“We definitely feel sympathy for him because he performed well in this game. But there must be a kicker who failed and unfortunately it was him and us,” Rodgers said as quoted by Sky Sports.
