PROOF! This former Southampton star is surely meant for Liverpool glory

Liverpool’s new centre-back Dejan Lovren might have made his name for Southampton, but it seemed that Anfield was always on his mind, ever since he was still a young boy.

Lovren posted a photo of himself at the age of 14, posing next to Anfield legend Sami Hyypia, hinting that the 25-year-old Croatian defender might have viewed him as his idol.

Maybe Hyypia simply told him to continue what he was doing and one day he will be playing alongside Steven Gerrard…

A wish come true?
