Liverpool’s £20 million summer acquisition Dejan Lovren has revealed his incredible sense of pride at joining the Anfield club this summer, and that he feels the same sense of pride whenever he plays for the Merseyside team, as reported by the Daily Star.
He also spoke about how he felt the first time he heard the Liverpool fans sing You’ll Never Walk Alone, their famous anthem, when he made his debut for the club against his former side. Lovren has admitted that he felt chills when he heard the Kop sing the well known tune.
Lovren said: “I had chills throughout my body.
“The best thing as a Liverpool player is hearing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ every time. It’s a great honour.
“It’s a dream to play at Anfield. I touch the ‘This is Anfield’ sign with my left hand.
“I’m really proud about everything with Liverpool, not just the Champions League.
“I want to win as many trophies as I can. I would like to become a legend here.”
Lovren appeared in the Champions League for Liverpool for the first time on Tuesday night, as the Anfield club managed a 2-1 win against Bulgarian champions Ludogorets.
Mario Balotelli got the Reds off the mark in the game, scoring in the 80th minute, but a late equaliser threatened to cost Brendan Rodgers’s side the points. An injury time penalty from captain fantastic Steven Gerrard gave them a vital win.
