Lovren Aiming To Show True Colours

Dejan Lovren says he will prove the doubters wrong this term as he plans to enjoy a much better second season for Liverpool.

The centre-back failed to impress initially following his £20million move from Southampton and lost his place in defence with Mamadou Sakho, Kolo Toure and Martin Skrtel all picked ahead of him at times. However, the Croatia international says he believes he can be much better this time around – especially as he has the benefit of a full pre-season under his belt with the Reds.

“I didn’t do pre-season last year when I came here so it’s important for me to do the whole pre-season and be fit enough for the first game. “It definitely affected me last year. When you are with the team for one month and when you train with them, it’s not the same as arriving and then in seven days you are playing the game. It was a difficult time for me.”

He added: “I know when I do a good pre-season then I know I will have a good season, so I can’t wait to start and to show everyone that they are wrong.”
