A number of Liverpool supporters have been praising Dejan Lovren for speaking out against the formation of a European Super League.
It has been a tough year for football, with the global pandemic taking its toll on the sport. For supporters, the game has been a pale imitation of its former self, with empty stadia making for lifeless atmospheres and poorer spectacles.
From a Liverpool perspective, not having fans inside Anfield has felt significant, playing a part in the Reds’ insipid defence of the Premier League title.
In what is a case of typically poor timing, news broke on Sunday regarding a European Super League, with Liverpool and the rest of the Premier League’s ‘big six’ clubs all agreeing to join it.
There has been a fierce backlash to the news, and while very few footballers who have spoken out so far, Lovren took to Twitter to provide his thoughts:
Football will be in the near future on a brink of complete collapse. Nobody is thinking about the bigger picture, only the financial side.
I still believe we can solve this unpleasant situation.
