‘Wrong’: Dejan Lovren jumps to the defence of underfire Liverpool supporter with strong eight-word message on Twitter

Dejan Lovren has jumped to the defence of former teammate and friend Jordan Henderson, who has been criticised on social media quite heavily recently for his poor performances.

The Englishman has not been performing to the standards that are expected of the captain of Liverpool and with the Premier League title seemingly slipping away from the Reds’, fans are frustrated.

In the last few games, Henderson has been poor defensively and it has proved costly but it seems as though the English midfielder is drained, fatigued and worn out.

On Wednesday evening, there seemed to be an increase in the number of fans discussing Henderson’s form and Dejan Lovren, who seems to have been paying attention, was not pleased with it.

He replied to a fan who asked: “Why are Liverpool supporters hating [on] Hendo?” Lovren now plays for Zenit St Petersburg but it’s clear he still has a soft spot for the Reds after spending 6 years at Anfield.

He replied: “Wrong. No REAL Liverpool supporter hates any player.”

Henderson is playing badly but he doesn’t deserve online abuse. No player does. Jurgen Klopp needs to give him a rest but with Naby Keita at AFCON, Thiago and Harvey Elliott injured and COVID-19 tearing through the football club, I’m not sure if that’s possible.

Unfortunately, Lovren will be well aware of the damage trolls and critics on social media can cause as he was a frustrating performer during his time at the club.

Many fans will remember how he would turn in a world-class performance in one game only to drop a clanger the next week.

It was frustrating for me not because of the inconsistency but because it you could see he was capable of being a world-class player but ego and a lack of concentration held him back which is why he played so well next to Virgil van Dijk.

The Dutchman helped him play his best football as he had a leader and commander next to him to keep him in line and to ensure he never switched off at important moments in big games.
