Liverpool fans weren’t exactly disappointed to see Dejan Lovren depart the club this summer.

The Croatian defender spent six seasons at Anfield, playing 185 times for the club. However, the former Southampton man was error-prone and would frustrate supporters with moments of madness that often cost his side.

But you couldn’t argue with his commitment and passion.

You could tell how much playing for Liverpool really meant to him and how much he was affected by a poor performance.

While he wasn’t necessarily a fan favourite at Anfield, he seemed to be very well-liked by the squad.

And we’re not just talking about his bromance with Mohamed Salah.

That’s because Lovren has revealed a letter and gift captain Jordan Henderson sent him following his month to Zenit this summer.

Lovren uploaded it on his Instagram story with the caption: “I am without words captain…Thank you once again. Forever @jhenderson.”

Henderson showing what a fantastic captain he is once again.

Just beautiful.

And it brought a tear to the eyes of many Liverpool fans. Check out the best reaction on social media:

It’s not just Henderson who paid tribute to Lovren.

His manager, Jurgen Klopp, also had some very nice words to say after he left the club.

“Another Liverpool legend who leaves the club, because he was absolutely a very, very important part of this team from the first day since I was in,” Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com.

“I remember when we played with Dortmund against Liverpool in the pre-season friendly and Dejan scored with a header with incredible power. That was the image I had in my mind when I came here and I thought about the defenders we had at the time.

“He played super games and scored one of the most important goals of our history in the 4-3 against Borussia Dortmund; a really wonderful moment to share.

“He had so many good games. Yes, I think he will not like the Tottenham game when I took him off in the first half, but it is part of football and part of development – and he always came back.

“When he was fit, he was very, very, very often in the team. A great player and a great person.

“Yesterday we said, ‘Who is now the best friend of Mo?’ because they were really real, real bezzies. They were really close and that’s the thing, we will miss him.

“He is a model athlete, has everything you need and now he goes to Russia, but he can come back always – he will be always welcome because he is a really nice guy.”
