Carragher slates Lovren over mishit clearance


Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has criticised current Reds centre-back Dejan Lovren.

The Croatia international put in a decent performance against Spurs during the 2-2 draw on Sunday – but his scruffy attempt at a clearance allowed Harry Kane in to earn a contentious penalty for the away side.

And Carragher, who was speaking to Sky Sports after the game, took the opportunity to accuse the Croatia international of letting himself down with another error.

“That incident sums up Dejan Lovren as a footballer: ‘has a great game, but always lets himself down with a stupid mistake.'” he said.

It isn’t the first time that the former Southampton man has been singled out for criticism by pundits and it is unlikely to be the last time either.

It was, however, a much improved performance by the twenty-eight year old when compared to the disastrous 4-1 loss at Wembley against Spurs back in October, when Lovren was substituted after around the half hour mark following a horror show.

Lovren will be desperate to hold down a spot in the defence alongside new signing Virgil Van Dijk and much of his performance on Sunday suggested that he could be the partner for the Dutchman.

But, as Carragher pointed out, he does always have a rash moment in his locker.
