Lovren positive for next season
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Dejan Lovren has promised that Liverpool will bounce back and become even stronger following their Champions League final heartbreak.
No one expected Jurgen Klopp’s side to get to the final when they began the campaign with a qualifier against Hoffenheim in August, but Lovren insists the improvement witnessed throughout the season will continue when the new campaign begins in just over two months.
“I’m proud of the team, I’m proud of the players. They gave everything,” said the Croatia defender, who put in an impressive display to keep Cristiano Ronaldo quiet.
“I’m proud of the fans who travelled such a long way to support us. I promise that next year we will come back even stronger because I feel this team is growing every day.
“We beat the best teams in Europe. We beat Man City, who had a fantastic season in the Premier League. We need to find the positives.”
