This is Liverpool’s year, declares Reds defender Dejan Lovren
Liverpool centre-half Dejan Lovren is encouraged by the Reds's fantastic summer signings
Dejan Lovren has warned Liverpool’s Premier League title rivals that this is the Reds’s year.
The Croatia international has made two top-flight appearances for the Reds since moving to Anfield in a £20m deal from Southampton earlier this summer.
It wasn’t my best performance [against Manchester City] but it is the beginning of the season and we can learn from mistakes
25-year-old Lovren was one of nine summer signings that Brendan Rodgers recruited to strengthen his squad, spending over £110m on new players.
And the former Lyon defender is impressed by the quality of Rodgers’s signings, adding that he is confident Liverpool will enjoy a good year.
“It’s a massive achievement to bring these players here. You have quality players, a quality team and legends around you. I think this is our year,” Lovren told Football Focus.
Lovren reassured Liverpool supporters that he would improve after a conspicuous showing as the Reds suffered a 3-1 loss to Manchester City last Monday.
“It’s great to hear the manager has a lot of confidence in me, but I’m a young player and need to improve every game,” Lovren added.
“It wasn’t my best performance [against Manchester City] but it is the beginning of the season and we can learn from mistakes.”
