Dejan Lovren may not convince the majority which his on-field actions, but the respect for him as a top guy behind-the-scenes is mutual.
It’s fairly evident the Croatian is a popular figure among his teammates, although that has seemingly exposed him as an easy target of friendly tormenting.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain touched a nerve on Friday as he invited his Instagram following to watch him mock Lovren’s new haircut.
The fact Lovren is slightly hurt by the comments makes it all the funnier, not to mention Andrew Robertson in stitches in the background.
In all honesty, it’s fair from the worst trim seen at Anfield over the past couple of seasons…
Lovren’s hair may have drawn the critics, but it certainly doesn’t top the list of eyebrow-raising styles on Merseyside.
Roberto Firmino’s top-knot from last season springs to mind, although few could complain when he was flourishing alongside Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho.
The Brazilian has since looked routinely sharp whilst producing his most productive season since joining Liverpool.
Alberto Moreno also warrants a mention for his half-finished cut, as well as his own experimentation with Firmino’s top-knot.
A long-hair craze has also seen Adam Lallana, Danny Ings and Harry Wilson grow out their locks, with the former subject to his own teasing at the hands of captain Jordan Henderson.
Whilst on the subject of hair, Emre Can undoubtedly deserves to be commended for his ever-slick barnet.
