Southampton fans poke fun at Lovren following Champions League heartbreak

Over the last few years, Southampton have been the butt of a running joke that they are the feeder club for Liverpool.

A number of the Saints’ top stars have been sold to the Merseyside outfit, including Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and Virgil van Dijk.

Dejan Lovren is another Southampton player who made the move to Anfield.

Even though the transfer was four years ago, plenty of Saints supporters still feel bitter towards the Croatian international, who has been capped 37 times for his country.

On Saturday night, Liverpool were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in the Champions League final, and the manner of the loss was particularly cruel.

Mohamed Salah was substituted in the 31st minute after dislocating his shoulder, and goalkeeper Loris Karius made two costly blunders that led to goals from Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.

After the final whistle, Karius broke down in tears, as did a number of his teammates, including Lovren.

Once a picture emerged online of the centre-back crying, Southampton fans were quick to mock on Reddit.
