Dejan Lovren shares shocking DEATH THREAT message from football fan

The Croatian has since revealed he received a death threat against his family on social media and has described the message as "disgusting".

The 28 year old Lovren responded to the message by stating, "Horrible what kind of people we have". That's part of the game.

"Disgraceful to read about the comments toward Lovren and his family!"

As something of a gesture towards Lovren, Reds fans have come together to vote for him as the club's Player of the Month so that he realises that he has the backing of the Anfield faithful.

The 28-year-old Croatia centre-back has endured a hard start to the Premier League season with Liverpool, with many fans calling for Jurgen Klopp to drop him from the first-team due to inconsistent form.

Lovren was substituted midway through the first half of Liverpool's 4-1 defeat to Tottenham on October 22 and was later ruled out of the win over Huddersfield after sustaining an injury in the warm-up.

Kop boss Jurgen Klopp hit out at the media reaction to Lovren's performance.

His performance was widely criticised but Klopp said: "I don't wish one of you to have your mistakes discussed in public. You can not even imagine how it feels", Klopp said of Lovren after the Spurs game.

He said: "You are the kind of people standing around with smartphones instead of helping, I'm not this kind of person". I'm not this kind of person. Football is just a game and not a matter of life or death.
