‘Big Mistake!’ ‘Taking An Unnecessary Risk’ ‘Doesn’t Make Sense’ Fans Surprised By Liverpool’s Willingness To Sell Experienced Defender

Liverpool have held talks with Roma over the possible sale of Dejan Lovren, according to multiple reports in the English media. The Croatian is aware he is fourth choice and wants more regular first-team football.

The 30-year-old did not make the squad for the first Premier League game of the season against Norwich and was not in the travelling party that flew out to Turkey for tomorrow night’s match against Chelsea in the European Super Cup.

Most fans on Twitter have been left scratching their heads over the Reds’ willingness to sell Lovren:

There were, though, a few supporters who believe it is the right decision to let the defender leave:

As some have said, it is an unnecessary risk to allow Lovren to leave. Both Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are prone to injury, and while the Croatian doesn’t have the best fitness record himself, he would offer another experienced option.

Klopp will be asking a lot of Ki-Jana Hoever and Sepp van den Berg to step up if there is an injury crisis in defence later on in the campaign.
