Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers on Dejan Lovren: ‘He’s a leader, and he can play’ [Video]
In going out and spending the highest fee for a defender in the club’s history, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers evidently rates Dejan Lovren very highly.
Liverpool have brought the Croatian defender in from Southampton for a 20 million pound fee, surpassing the £18m and £15m sums spent on Glen Johnson and Mamadou Sakho respectively.
Rodgers spoke highly of his new centre half in his interview after Liverpool’s win over Olympiakos, saying:
‘He’s a leader, he leads the line, he can defend…and he can play.
And he’s still only in his mid-20s, so there’s time and room for improvement.’
