Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has confirmed that a “disgusting” death threat against his family was sent to him via social media.
The 28-year old Croatian international made this confirmation in an Instagram story as he shared a screengrab of a private message in which the sender disclosed that they would “murder” his family.
On the threat, Lovren said:
“I cannot ignore when my family is threatened.”
“I just can’t and won’t accept that.” he added.
Dejan Lovren has come in for a lot of criticisms after his performance during the recent 4-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.
He was at fault for Tottenham’s opening two goals during the game and was substituted by his manager, Jurgen Klopp, after just 31 minutes.
