Le Tissier responds to Lovren rumours: 'If Liverpool sell Suarez will he want to leave?'

Southampton Football Club

Former Southampton great Matt Le Tissier has posted a message following comments attributed do Dejan Lovren hinted that he wants a Liverpool move.

Ex-Southampton player Matt Le Tissier has tweeted a message about Saints defender Dejan Lovren following quotes attributed to the latter suggested he wanted a move to Liverpool.

In an interview with Sportske Novosti, Lovren is quoted as saying, “It was unbelievable that a few days ago I had an offer of £20million. It was in the morning and by the afternoon the club had said I was not for sale. My head is already at Liverpool.”

And now Le Tissier has taken to Twitter to have his say, including Lovren's official Twitter account in his message.

"So Dejan Lovren wants to leave SFC for LFC cos we're selling (our) best players," Le Tissier wrote.  "If he signs and they sell Suarez will he want another transfer?"

It is an interesting comment from the Southampton legend, and one that could prove relevant if Liverpool ultimately sign Lovren and complete the much-mooted transfer of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.

Whatever happens for both Premier League clubs, it is clear Lovren's recent comments have not gone down well with the Saints faithful, for obvious reasons.
