Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has hailed £20million Dejan Lovren.
The classy Croatian defender has finally completed his switch from Southampton, after agreeing a five-year deal worth around £50,000-a-week.
And Rodgers Rodgers reckons Lovren is the defensive leader.
As quoted on the Liverpool Official site, he said: “He is very commanding and has great leadership qualities. He’s a front foot defender.
“He’s aggressive, he goes and attacks the ball,” the Reds boss said.
“He’s a good character and he can play.
“But first and foremost a defender has to be able to defend and he can defend.”
