Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has said that he’s happy that he stayed at Anfield over the summer, but isn’t sure what will happen in the future.
The Croatian international was subject of interest from Serie A giants AS Roma and AC Milan, but the Reds valuation of the centre half was too high for the Italians.
Lovren then stayed at Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp’s fourth choice centre back, and he may now be third choice, but he’s put in some decent performances.
That being said, Dejan isn’t one of the first names on the team sheet and a man who believes he’s one of the best defenders in the world won’t stand sitting on the bench.
“Let’s see what will happen. It was a challenge for me this summer to stay here but I gave everything in pre-season and I fought. There are always some new challenges, maybe, in front of you,” he told the Evening Standard.
“It depends whether you accept them or not but it also depends on whether you are needed in the team or not. In the end I stayed and I am quite happy.”
It does sound as if Lovren is just biding his time until he can get a move away, but the No.6 has vowed to give his all while he’s still here.
“I will always be here if I am needed. I am giving more than 100 per cent for this club from day one,” he added.
