Dejan Lovren's Twitter AMA Gets Crashed By Saints Fans

Former Southampton defender Dejan Lovren had to endure some abuse for his first edition of #AskLovren since moving to Liverpool.

Dejan Lovren's first attempt at his #AskLovren Q&A with fans as a Liverpool player backfired after angry Saints fans bombarded the Croat with some uncomfortable questions.

The cultured centre-half, presumably bored while having to train with Liverpool's youth players after failing to gain a USA Visa, did well to publicly ignore the contempt thrown his way.

However, the die-hard south coast support managed to get in a few shots which must have stung Lovren's over-inflated ego.

And then there were the obligatory "Wanyama is gonna get you" tweets:

I can't say I condone wanting a former player to get a serious career-threatening injury. However, I think those above tweets give a fair indication of what Saints fans think of Lovren and the way he treated the club in forcing a move to Merseyside.
