Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has once again insisted that he is committed to Liverpool despite the uncertainty surrounding his future.
Lovren’s future at Liverpool has been a subject of speculation in the last two transfers but according to the player he is still giving his best for the team to achieve their objectives.
"It has been a test for me. But in these moments, I think you should stick with the team, even more, to show your quality even if you are not on the pitch with the first XI. The next day in training, you should give everything, just to respect your team-mates.
"Of course, it's not the happiest moment when I see myself on the bench, but it's the decision of the manager. I respect it and I am always the guy who will work 200 per cent behind closed doors. It's just part of football. If 20 players could play, it would be nice, but there are only 11 places. Whoever is in the best shape will play and that's fair enough," the Croatian defender told Sky Sports.
The 30-year-old is one of the club's longest-serving players having arrived from Southampton in 2014 and it is thought that his leadership skills are one reason why manager Jurgen Klopp refused to let him go.
He has found less game time since the emergence of Joe Gomez and was linked with a move to AS Roma in the past.
