Lovren criticises Southampton over Liverpool snub

Southampton defender Dejan Lovren has criticised the club after they rejected a £20m bid for him from Liverpool, Sky Sports is reporting.

After seeing three key teammates leave the St. Mary’s Stadium already this summer, Lovren has looked likely to follow Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert to Merseyside, only for Southampton to reject the big-money bid on Friday, insisting the Croatia international is not for sale.

However, Lovren has admitted that his head is already at Liverpool, and that he wants to join last season’s Premier League runners-up. He said: "Liverpool sent the offer and the club haven’t informed me, not even about the subsequent Liverpool bids, and that wasn’t right. I found out from other people, which disappointed me, and I realise I’ve got no business staying at Southampton.

"They paid £9m for me so they would’ve earned twice the amount. At this point, I don’t know what I’ll do and I don’t like it. Frankly, my head is already at Liverpool. They are one of the biggest clubs in the world and the last time I played at Anfield I got chills when I heard ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’. I would like to listen to it all the time."

Lovren scored the only goal as Southampton won at Anfield last season, one of a number of highlights in his first season in English football, as he helped the Saints to an impressive eighth place.
