Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler has told Liverpool fans to lay off Dejan Lovren after the centre-back took to social media to tell Sergio Ramos exactly what he thinks about him.
“I was laughing when I saw Dejan Lovren’s burn on Sergio Ramos,” Fowler told.
“I’ve actually seen quite a few Liverpool fans having ago at him, finding a way to say he was disrespectful or whatever, but c’mon, it was funny.
And it was also a player showing he believes in himself and his country. I’ll tell you what as well, Ramos himself will think it’s fair enough.
He’s someone who dishes it out. He’s always emerging after games and in the media having a go, bigging himself up and trolling opponents.
“He was at it again recently against Viktoria Plzen – that was an obvious elbow and, even though he said afterwards he didn’t mean to injure his opponent, he probably did.
But that’s what you get with him – and I’m not complaining. He’s one you hate… but would have on your team.
He’s got that horribleness about him – and that’s a good thing in a defender, in my experience, even if I was on the end of a lot of that in my career! And I’ll say the same about Lovren too – and actually, the stuff he came out with after the Spain game, certainly showed confidence.”
Fowler also went on to say that if it were Virgil van Dijk behind the comments aimed at Ramos, many would have accepted it and laughed.
If it was Virgil van Dijk doing it, Liverpool fans would have loved it. I like Lovren being cocky. Fair play, lad,” Fowler added.
Just keep it up. Oh, and don’t moan if someone does it back.”
