Defending himself, Liverpool’s centre-back Dejan Lovren has said he makes fewer mistakes than Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos.
Lovren has been on the spotlight on a number of mistakes that he has made since joining Liverpool in 2014 and the Croat says, sometimes he does not believe he deserves the hate that comes with those mistakes.
“People always catch you on these mistakes, they don’t look at the good things. Sometimes I think I don’t deserve the hate, I would say. If you look, Ramos, he has many more mistakes than me. But he’s at Real Madrid. Ronaldo, a couple of seasons ago, when you do a mistake, but you win 5-1, 5-2, nobody sees the mistake. You know what I mean. I’m, like, quite unlucky. When I make the mistake it’s 1-0 and finishes. But like I said, I carry on.” Lovren told Copa 90.
Lovren, in a further suggestion that he does not rate Ramos, said that Raphael Varane is far better than the Spaniard given that he won Champions League title and the World Cup trophy this year. Both Varane and Ramos are the regular centre-backs for Madrid.
“He won the Champions League, he won the World Cup, so he should be the best defender in the world. I think Ramos was it, they chose Ramos? That’s the decision which you cannot change,” Lovren concluded.
