Ragnar Klavan produces yet another pointless skill vs Maribor

Dejan Lovren has had a very tough couple of weeks.

He was dragged off after half an hour against Tottenham during Liverpool’s 4-1 thrashing last month, resulting in him having a tantrum on Instagram by deleting Liverpool from his profile.

He was then injured in the warm-up ahead of the Premier League clash against Huddersfield last weekend.

Then, this week, he revealed a shocking death threat he had received on social media.

While Lovren probably isn’t in the greatest moods at the moment, Ragnar Klavan is certainly enjoying deputising in his absence.

He got a late call-up against Huddersfield and helped the side keep a rare clean sheet.

But achieving a clean sheet wasn’t all Klavan had in his locker.

That’s because he produced a rather bizarre turn with the ball at his feet.

Take a look:

And with Lovren still out injured, Klaven was, once again, in the starting XI for the Champions League clash against Maribor.

The Estonian probably didn’t expect to have to do much considering Liverpool beat the Slovakian side 7-0 just two weeks ago.

And that proved true with the home side dominating possession.

Touches were few and far between for Klavan so, when he did get the ball, he wanted to make the most of it.

How could he do that?

By producing yet another pointless turn when in possession.

Have a look:

Liverpool fans loved it

We’ve got to applaud him for the audacity.

Liverpool fans certainly seem to be enjoying it. Just check out the reaction on Twitter:

We’re not sure whether Jurgen Klopp will feel the same way, though. Imagine if he does that and a striker nips in behind him to steal the ball.

Either way, we love it and hope that Klavan can produce one of his trademark turns in every match he plays.
