Dejan Lovren issues warning to Liverpool’s top-four rivals
Dejan Lovren says the best is yet to come from Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side
Dejan Lovren has warned Liverpool’s rivals that the best is yet to come for the Reds under Jurgen Klopp.
The Reds suffered a surprise 2-0 loss to Newcastle United at St James’s Park in the Premier League on Sunday evening.
Everyone knows it is a tough job, but we are here to do that job
Liverpool’s defeat by the Magpies was just their second in 12 games in all competitions since Klopp took over the reins of the Merseyside outfit.
The 48-year-old former Borussia Dortmund manager has already masterminded memorable victories over Chelsea, Manchester City and Southampton.
And Lovren, who has won back his place in the first-team following injury to Mamadou Sakho last month, believes Liverpool are only getting started under Klopp.
“We have only been working with him a short time, barely two months, and we have already had some good results with him,” Lovren told Liverpool’s magazine.
“With time it will be better. With his methods and his way of working, I don’t see how it cannot be better.
“We will know him more and he will know us more and he will also have a better understanding of the league and the club.
“He knows the expectations at Liverpool. Everyone knows it is a tough job, but we are here to do that job.”
Liverpool face Sion in the Europa League on Thursday night as Klopp’s side look to secure top spot in their group.
The Reds welcome West Bromwich Albion to Anfield in their next Premier League game on Sunday afternoon.
The Merseyside outfit are in sixth place and nine points behind Premier League leaders Leicester City.
