Klopp backs Lovren's lofty 'best in the world' claim

Klopp backs Lovren's lofty 'best in the world' claim

"It's something special for me", Lovren said regarding the feat.

Liverpool will face Bury and Blackburn Rovers in pre-season friendlies before their first International Champions Cup game against Borussia Dortmund on July 22.

"Same in the Champions League game - I didn't see him play too bad in the Champions League final".

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has backed Dejan Lovren's claims he is among the world's best defenders. "People should recognise that I am also one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense".

Putin meets Iranian Supreme Leader’s envoy a day after Israel’s PM
Israel has been on high alert as Syrian government forces advance on rebels in the vicinity of the occupied Golan Heights. Velayati also said that U.S. sanctions against Iran could raise oil prices and harm oil consumers.


Klopp raised a good point by saying that Lovren would have been better off letting someone other than himself praise his defensive prowess before explaining why the 29-year-old is not off the mark.

Lovren told CNN that they are a small country, only four million people and have big talent in their squad.

The Real Madrid star has captained Croatia to their first World Cup final, improving on the country's previous best performance at the tournament in 1998, when they finished third.

Vida and assistant coach Ognjen Vukojevic - who has since been sacked by Croatia - were filmed making comments including "Glory to Ukraine", a phrase that has been adopted by anti-Russian nationalists, after Croatia beat Russia on penalties in the quarter-finals.

Woman survives seven days on radiator water after California crash
She and her vehicle were last seen on a CCTV camera at a petrol station on 6 July, 50 miles north of where she was found. Family members said she had been driving from Portland to her sister's home in Lancaster in Southern California.


Firmino will be a late arrival after his run to the quarter-finals of the World Cup with Brazil.

"We've had this weight on our shoulders for 20 years". We will never forget this.

If Lovren and his team-mates can control Mbappe and manage the alternative threats of Olivier Giroud and Antoine Griezmann on Sunday in Moscow, Croatia will have a genuine chance of pulling off a victory. Before this game they said we are exhausted but we showed in extra-time we had fresher legs than them.
