The Reds centre-half is the toast of Merseyside after guiding Jurgen Klopp’s men past Borussia Dortmund and into the Europa League semi-finals.
Lovren was the name on everyone’s lips at Anfield on Thursday after his stunning stoppage-winner completed a thrilling 4-3 comeback victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League quarter-finals.
His last-gasp header ensured a remarkable 5-4 aggregate victory against the German giants, and often a maligned figure at the club, the Croatia international seemingly won over the supporters, especially one man, who missed the match as his wife gave birth to their first child.
Watching the drama unfold from inside a hospital, Liverpool fan Michael beamed as he toldBBC 5 live: “I’m going to call him Dejan.”
He added: “This is the greatest day of my life. I am Liverpool Football Club.
“I’ve been to Istanbul and Rome. I’ve been everywhere. But that was fantastic.”
