‘I am one of the best in the world’ – Liverpool star

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has insisted that his name should be mentioned each time people talk about the best defenders in the world.

Lovren is surprised that his earlier stand of being among the best in the world attracted criticism, stating that he never said anything wrong by the statement.

The Liverpool defender took a swipe at Real Madrid’s defender by saying that he does not make as many mistakes as the Spanish player who is highly rated in the world.

He noted that those who have condemned him for his statements are not only the fans of the Real Madrid player but are haters who will always find one reason to say the negative.

Lovren said there is no perfect situation anywhere as he is not perfect in his play on the pitch just like others but noted that there are people who always stay on the watch to see his mistakes without seeing the good things he does.

He argued that there is no player currently in the Premier League that played in the Champions League final and went a month later to play in the World Cup final. That to him is an achievement that cannot be matched.
