Dejan Lovren snubbed by West Ham mascot before Liverpool match

It’s been an up and down year for Dejan Lovren at Liverpool.

Earlier on this season, there were multiple calls for him to be dropped from the side after a series of shoddy performances.

Blushes at the Boleyn Ground

Things have improved of late - notably so under Jurgen Klopp - but the Croatian was given reason to blush before his side’s clash with West Ham today.

A cheerful Lovren waited in the tunnel at the Boleyn Ground and made to give one of the West Ham mascots a high five. Unfortunately, the cheeky youngster had other ideas and withdrew his hand before Lovren could make contact. (Scroll down for the video).

Yes, you did read that right; Lovren has suffered the ignominy of being shown up by a child. What’s more, it was caught on camera for the masses to revel in.

Lovren future

Naturally, the Liverpool defender will be more concerned with ensuring he can remain in Klopp’s starting XI than whether or not he can high five children and on the strength of his recent performances he might stand a good chance of doing just that.

Questions obviously remain over his consistency as the highest level but Klopp doesn’t appear to have too many reservations heading into the winter transfer window.

Liverpool fans, is Lovren good enough for Klopp’s first-team moving forward? Let us know in the comments box below.
