Former Liverpool Defender Dejan Lovren Scores Spectacular Chested Own Goal For Zenit St Petersburg
Dejan Lovren is still doing Dejan Lovren things over in Russia.
The former Liverpool and Southampton defender has just scored one of the most spectacular own goals in recent memory to gift Spartak Moscow an equaliser against Zenit St Petersburg this evening.
With nobody anywhere near him after the ball was headed into the area, the Zenit skipper had loads of time and space and so decided to chest the ball back to his goalkeeper.
However, he got the connection wrong and possibly underestimated his chest power as the ball looped over the 'keeper in hilarious fashion.
It really was peak Dejan Lovren. The Croatian produced a horrendous passage of play that won't come as much of a surprise to those who watched him produce a whole host of howlers for Liverpool.

After winning the Champions League and Premier League at Liverpool, Lovren joined Russian champions Zenit on a three-year deal on July.
Lovren is well-known for being his own biggest fan, having infamously said: "I think people should recognise that I am also one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense."
In an interview with Copa90 in November 2018, he doubled down on his comments - naming his top five defenders as Virgil Van Dijk, Thiago Silva, Sergio Ramos, Rafaël Varane and himself.
