A number of Liverpool supporters having been hailing Dejan Lovren following a tweet in which he mocked Manchester City’s Champions League final defeat.
The Reds’ season may have ended last weekend, but there was still one huge game to complete the 2020/21 campaign on Saturday night. City took on Chelsea in club football’s biggest match, with the Londoners prevailing 1-0 in Porto thanks to Kai Havertz’s first half goal.
It was yet another European failure for Pep Guardiola and his City side, with Liverpool’s increasingly fierce rivals still yet to win the competition despite spending vast sums of money down the years.
Someone who seemed to take an element of delight in City losing was Lovren, who joked on Twitter that their lack of a Croatian player proved costly. The former Liverpool man pointed out that the last nine Champions League winners have all contained at least one player from his homeland, with Mateo Kovacic the latest example.
