We’re not sure if this complete rubbish, and would take the rumours with an enormous pinch of salt for now – until a proper source confirms otherwise – but Liverpool fans have been debating ‘news’ that Dejan Lovren might be in line for the captaincy this season…
Do understand we’re not suggesting there’s any merit in these reports, but simply found the online reaction to the possibility from Liverpool fans interesting.
Most, it seems, are not massive on the idea and think it would be both disrespectful to Jordan Henderson and damaging to Lovren’s confidence – with the Croat already initially struggling to live up to his £20m price-tag.
I personally think Lovren will make a great Captain should Klopp decide he is the right man. Can and Matip both potential in the future.

Rumours going around that Lovren is to become the new captain of #LFC.

People wanted Klopp as manager but have so far questioned every single decision he’s made. If he wants Lovren captain then so be it. #LFC

Where is this Lovren captain talk coming from? If we learnt anything he needs to concentrate on his own game & keep it simple to perform

@Jay82_LFC Henderson’s game dipped when he became Captain, don’t want the same to happen to Lovren. A lot can’t handle the pressure of it.

@Jay82_LFC put him under the spotlight and see what happens before selling him next summer and not loosing 20m

@rvpisarapist Emre Can is far more suited that Lovren to be captain. In fact, he’s far more suited to be a Liverpool player. Lovren is shit.

Lovren doesn’t deserve to be captain for me. Plus, If he couldn’t handle the pressure of a high price tag how’s he going to fare as captain?

Lovren is our new Captain? Our club has fallen down a lot from Gerrard to Henderson To Lovren

@Mr_CallumWright I’m sure when Rodgers signed him he said something about him being a leader so really doesn’t surprise me if true

Anyone who thinks 1 Lovren is good enough to be #LFC captain and 2 that Klopp would have him as captain of a team the represents him is nuts
