They make good love in Croatia - Lovren calls for respect

They make good love in Croatia - Lovren calls for respect

Croatia and Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren has claimed that he deserves to be considered amongst the best defenders in world football.

"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".

Lovren was an integral contributor for the Reds as they reached the Champions League final in May, meaning the 29-year-old will have played in two of the biggest fixtures in world football within two months.

Speaking after Croatia's 2-1 win over England, Lovren told beIN Sports: 'It's something special, for me.

'I think people should recognise that I am also one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense'.

I showed why I took Liverpool to the final of the Champions League and now with the national team, and now I'm in the World Cup final.

"I went through a lot of sh** and now I would say it is coming back".




This is also the first time the Balkan nation has made the final - the furthest they had advanced previously was in France in 1998, when a Davor Suker-inspired side were knocked out by the hosts in the last four.

"People are crying, they are happy in our country - this is something historical for us", Lovren said.

He continued: 'This is something we will never forget.

"After 20 years, people will remember us, not only the '98 team". We've had this weight on our shoulders all the time, and now people will never forget us.

"Now we have the chance to do something even better and hopefully we can do it". We couldn't control the ball or control situations. "In extra-time we showed we are still able with the fatigue to play our game".

He added: "Today everyone in Croatia and around the world knows that we managed to make history".
