GC 150 now Liverpool's Dejan Lovren forced to delete Instagram account after wave of abuse

Dejan Lovren

If you can't handle the heat, just delete your social media accounts.

It's safe to say that Dejan Lovren has had a rough time at Liverpool since joining from Southampton for around £20million. 

Last season, Lovren looked a bit out of his depth and this season hasn't exactly gone well for him, especially after yesterday's howler against West Ham.

The Croatian centre-back had an absolute nightmare, gifting West Ham's second goal after a few bumbling stepovers and turns before falling flat on his face.

Now, it's not like football fans to have a dig at someone when they play bad... oh wait that' the exact opposite of what people do. In fact, the abuse Lovren received was enough for the 26-year-old to take drastic measures...

He deleted his Instagram account! 

Clearly all the numbers Lovren had wasn't worth the waves of abuse he was bombarded with in wake of Liverpool's 3-0 defeat at Anfield against West Ham.

Now, while some where pretty nice about Lovren, some Liverpool fans got right stuck into the defender: 

We're gonna miss Lovren on Instagram, mainly just for gold like this... 

Poor Dejan Lovren, all of this just 24 hours after Brendan Rodgers claimed that he had managed to bounce back – however we doubt the Croatian will go all Alan Partridge and have the last laugh...
