Liverpool fans loved Dejan Lovren’s final performance despite defeat

Liverpool supporters are still absorbing what was a deeply disappointing Saturday night in Kiev, after they were defeated 3-1 by Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final.

Goals from Gareth Bale provided the victory for the Spaniards, after Sadio Mane had equalised Karim Benzema’s opener, which came from a Loris Karius goalkeeping howler.

Fans always knew it was going to be a difficult evening, but held hope throughout until Bale’s double, even after Mohamed Salah went off injured after a challenge from Sergio Ramos.

Despite the negative result, one man that supporters were quick to pay tribute to was Dejan Lovren, who had a superb game along with his other teammates in the Liverpool back four.

The Croatian international has had quite the turnaround this season, going from fan scapegoat to hero. Now fans believe he should be the player that Loris Karius looks to, to bounce back from his high profile mistake and learn from it.
