Liverpool Fans Can't Quite Make Out Why Dejan Lovren Clip Has Been Tweeted
Liverpool's official Twitter account have posted a bizarre clip of Dejan Lovren and fans cannot understand why.
Jurgen Klopp's side welcomed Blackburn Rovers to Anfield last week and warmed up for the Premier League's return with a 6-0 win.
Lovren featured in the game and @LFC decided to tweet a clip of the Croatian controlling the ball and then passing it forward.
Nice, @Dejan06Lovren :ok_hand: pic.twitter.com/eeS79e9Fte

It's admittedly a tidy bit of play from the 30-year-old but it surely didn't warrant a slow-motion breakdown.
Fans were quick to react and they weren't sure what to make of it.
Am I missing something here? All he's done is collect the ball and turn. It happens hundreds of times per game.

Wait were we supposed to be impressed there? He literally just intercepted and controlled a pass.

Is it just me or any 6 year old with a half decent football knowledge would do that seamlessly?- :goat::tm: (@TheFergusonCode) June 14, 2020

The Reds got used to seeing the most pointless of skills from one of their former central defenders - Ragnar Klavan.
Klavan spent two years at Liverpool between 2016 and 2018 with his hilarious body feints and spins standing out.

Jurgen Klopp will likely let Lovren perform all the skill he wants should Liverpool clinch their first ever Premier League title when the season resumes.
They are currently 25 points clear at the top and are guaranteed the title if they win their next two games.
Liverpool's league campaign resumes next Sunday when they face-off with Everton in the Merseyside derby.
When do you think Liverpool will clinch their first Premier League title?
