Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp backs Dejan Lovren after Croatia World Cup run

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp backs Dejan Lovren after Croatia World Cup run

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised centre-back Dejan Lovren for playing a key role in Croatia's run to the World Cup final.

Speaking to beIN SPORTS, Lovren said: "Modric is not one of the best but the best player in the middle in the world and, if we win, he deserves this World Cup".

"I went through a lot of sh** and now I would say it is coming back".

Lovren added that Luka Modric should be in line to win the Ballon d'Or following his excellent performances for Croatia, if they manage to beat France in Sunday's final.

It's an interesting choice for the mother-to-be, who in the recent weeks has flaunted her growing bump in chic maternity wear. Taoiseach Leo Varadkar welcomed the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex to the government buildings on Tuesday.

He told beIN Sport: "People said I had a hard season but I don't agree with that". And it Is a special history when you look back and see that three times in the knock out stages we have played 120 minutes and yet we still had fresher legs than that England team.

"Since I came in, maybe Dejan made three or four mistakes, two of them in the Tottenham game, maybe one in a Champions League game past year".

They had previously defeated Denmark and hosts Russian Federation on penalties, becoming the first team ever to advance to the final by winning three consecutive extra time games. Like with my case, I think people should respect me also.

"It's something we'll never forget". And Lovren insists they are not scared for the French, who will be favourites to fit the trophy for the second time, 20 years after beating the Croats in the last four.

San Antonio is expected to trade Leonard at some point, but they could hold out for a few months as they look to get a desirable offer.

"Now we have the chance to do something even better and hopefully we can do it".

Lovren will be hoping he can avoid the same fate as Henry by leading Croatia to World Cup victory against France this Sunday. This is why I am proud.

But after the break, Croatia took control, equalised through Ivan Perisic and then won the game with Mario Mandzukic's extra-time strike.
