Dejan Lovren thinks James Milner should smile more!
Our Croatian defender, who seems quite a serious character himself on the pitch and in interviews, has jokingly criticised Liverpool’s vice-captain for being uptight.
Lovren was talking to COPA90 in a relaxed and candid interview which covered a range of subjects, but in the snippet below you’ll hear our centre-back talking about our most ‘savage’ player!
Dejan Lovren on James Milner being the most savage & ruthless in the Liverpool squad

It doesn’t sound like Lovren likes Milner very much here, but we can assure you that the Englishman is one of the most popular members of the squad!
He’s also one of the most important. Against Arsenal on Saturday, we think Milner will start alongside Fabinho and Gini Wijnaldum in midfield, but we’re not sure if Lovren will get the nod.
The reason why is because Joe Gomez is much faster and against Arsenal’s pacy attackers, such as Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, he’ll be of more benefit to the backline.
