Liverpool fans on Twitter have been showing their frustration with Dejan Lovren after he was ruled out of Wednesday’s Champions League game against Porto due to illness.
Lovren has missed a whole host of games for Liverpool due to injury and illness this season, making only 14 appearances for the Reds in all competitions this season.
During Lovren’s absence, Joel Matip has firmly established himself as Virgil Van Dijk’s partner at the back and with Joe Gomez’s imminent return Lovren appears to be slipping down to fourth in the pecking order when it comes to Liverpool’s centre-halves.
As well as losing his place in the team he has seemingly lost the backing of the supporters. The Anfield faithful have become more and more frustrated with Lovren’s lack of fitness and certain sections of the fanbase are now calling for him to be sold this summer after his latest set back.
Here’s what Liverpool fans have been saying on Twitter…
Lovren mate. Proper sicknote.

Never known a player to get “injured” so often outside of match time.
