‘Don’t Want Him Anywhere Near the Starting XI’ – Liverpool Fans React as Player Returns to Training

2 min


​Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has returned to first team training as he steps up his recovery from injury.

The Croatian centre-back was prevented from immediately returning to the side after the World Cup because of injury, but the defender will be vying for a starting spot within a few weeks. 

In ​Lovren’s absence, Joe Gomez has stepped into the role of partnering Virgil Van Dijk and earned rave reviews from the opening few fixtures.

As a result of Gomez’s form in recent weeks, and Lovren’s last season, ​Liverpool fans have not been enthusiastic about the centre-back’s return from injury. Many fans took to Twitter to show their support for the England youngster in his new role.



​​Other fans, however, were indifferent to Lovren’s injury news as they believed that the 29-year-old would not have a place in the starting lineup.




Clearly most Liverpool fans are not too excited about Lovren’s return but the defender may feature in the starting lineup when he is fully fit.
