Most Dejan Lovren news seems to centre around Mo Salah these days but the former Liverpool defender has upset a lot of our fans.

In a post to his Twitter page, the 32-year-old wrote ‘Just cancelled my subscription for Disney+ Disgusting Disney! 🤮 #BoycottDisney‘:

Seeing as the Zenit Saint Petersburg defender cancelled his subscription directly after the statement, it’s not surprise to see many put two and two together – causing an understandably large amount of upset and anger.

This caused a lot of Twitter users to also share issues about the fact the man who plays in Russia hasn’t spoken out in support of the Ukrainian people, sharing his anti-vaccination beliefs and support of people such as Nigel Farage, Donald Trump and Laurence Fox.

Here’s a selection of the Tweets about the former Red:

One of the key reasons that there’s such a connection between Jurgen Klopp and the people inside Anfield, is the ideological similarities.

Dejan Lovren does not share the values of Liverpool Football Club and that should not be forgotten or ignored.
