It is now four years to the day since Dejan Lovren made his debut for Liverpool.

A £20 million signing from Southampton in the summer of 2014, as reported by the BBC, the Croatian centre-back celebrated a clean sheet on his first appearance for the club, a 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion.

2018 proved to be something of a wonderful year for Lovren. He reached the finals of the World Cup and the Champions League and losing both, to France and Real Madrid respectively, should not spoil what has been a year of redemption – even if his claims that he’s ‘definitely’ one of the world’s best defenders still seems a little ambitious.
