Dejan Lovren Gives Refreshingly Honest Interview About Making Mistakes
Dejan Lovren gets a lot of flack, and he's given an honest assessment on making mistakes.
The Liverpool defender has been guilty of some high-profile blunders, this season.
Remember his performance against Spurs at Wembley Stadium?
Lovren was at fault for a few goals his side conceded, and was subsequently dragged off by Jurgen Klopp all in the first half.
But, the 28-year-old feels he's been unfairly treated for his mistakes.
"Everyone makes mistakes, but I play one bad game in 18 and everyone says, 'Look, look, look.' Why? I don't deserve that. People don't see me in the 'small' games. They see 5-0 against Porto but nobody sees my part," he told The Times.

While revealing the personal demons he battles with as a result of committing an error.
"It's a challenge. A personality challenge. After a mistake, are you ready to move on? I did it straightaway after Spurs when I was in that record of 18 games unbeaten. Big players don't need six or seven games; big players in the next game prove you wrong.
"But some people don't care about that Dejan. They're just searching for the next mistake.
Lovren believes in Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp who shares the same feelings.
"You know maybe, it's sometimes just that my self-confidence disappears in some moments. And he [manager Jurgen Klopp] believes in me, you know? And I believe in him.
"Sometimes, I'm a person who thinks 'Ah, I'm really good.' But other times I think, 'Ah, I did that. I'm not good enough.'
"He says always be level, but it's difficult. You have sometimes self-confidence, sometimes not; sometimes good moods, sometimes not," he added.
