Klopp hails Lovren's 'fantastic tournament' after World Cup exploits
• Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised centre-back Dejan Lovren for playing a key role in Croatia's run to the World Cup final.
• Lovren has been considered by some as error-prone, but Klopp feels this assessment has been blown out of proportion.
"People very often judge other people pretty early. Since I came in, maybe Dejan made three or four mistakes, two of them in the Tottenham game, but it's for sure not 15 or 20," he told Liverpool's website.
"90 per cent of the time he played outstanding, 95 per cent absolutely OK, and five per cent probably he was not at his best. But you will find these problems for pretty much all the players in the world.
"He played a fantastic tournament so far. I'm really happy for him. The country is small but all the players are pretty big. It's impressive what they are doing.
