Cheap Dejan Lovren Liverpool FC Soccer Jersey/Shirt/Hoodie/Hat Wholesale

While hardly edifying for either player, the spectacularly petty war of words between Sergio Ramos and Dejan Lovren continues to rumble on into yet another new week.

The ill feeling between Ramos and several members of the Liverpool camp began during last season’s Champions League final, wherein the Real Madrid captain tangled with Mohamed Salah and injured the Egypt forward’s shoulder.

Several minor flare-ups have occurred since, before Lovren fully reignited the feud last month in an interview in which he claimed Ramos “makes more mistakes” than him.

Croatia then faced Spain in the Nations League on Thursday evening, snatching a dramatic 3-2 win in stoppage time.After the game, Lovren posted a video message on his Instagram story from the dressing room in which he once again took aim at Ramos, appearing to brag about elbowing his adversary in the head.

That was enough for Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic to intervene and vow to talk to his defender in an attempt to stop the squabbling from getting out of hand.

Of course, not being one to let things lie, Ramos has since swatted back at Lovren over social media by “liking” an Instagram post on fan account ramos4isco22 of an image trolling the Reds centre-half.

The composite image in question shows Ramos holding the Champions League trophy aloft over a distraught Lovren sobbing in defeat.

Subtle.

So, will this prove to be the end of the bickering? We all live in hope but alas, it would appear that we’re talking about two of the most infantile footballers in existence here.

Cheap James Milner Liverpool FC Soccer Jersey/Shirt/Hoodie/Hat Wholesale

 

Every successful squad needs a few key veterans in it. Players who have been there, done that; who have both gotten the winner’s medal and struggled with coming in second (or seventh) best. Players who know what it takes to bridge that gap.

For Liverpool, any list of the key veterans starts with James Milner, and for the younger players, his experience is invaluable. At least according to Trent Alexander-Arnold, who sees a blueprint for his own future in the vice-captain’s approach.

“I’d say James Milner is the most consistent player I’ve ever played or trained with,” Alexander-Arnold said. “I’ve never seen him have a bad session or a bad game. He’s so reliable and so versatile and that’s everything you want in a player.

“He’ll put his body on the line for the team and he’s non-stop. When times are hard, he’ll put in a tackle that lifts everyone and gets everyone up for the game [and] off the pitch he holds the highest standards that I’ve probably ever seen in someone.”

Few in the game work as hard as Milner does to stay fit and focused, and if some of that dedication to keeping himself physically prepared rubs off on a younger player like the 20-year-old Alexander-Arnold, that can’t be anything but a good thing.

“He demands a lot from himself and seeing that on a daily basis is incredible,” the young fullback added. “He’ll never give up in training, he’ll never stop running, and it gives you that motivation to do the same.”

Cheap Emre Can Liverpool FC Soccer Jersey/Shirt/Hoodie/Hat Wholesale

ROMA – Tra una settimana o poco più Emre Can sarà a Torino e potrà ricominciare ad allenarsi. Il club bianconero è in contatto costante con il suo centrocampista e nelle ultime ore ha potuto valutare che la convalescenza post operatoria sta procedendo bene, che tutti gli esami sono buoni e che il decorso sta andando avanti in maniera positiva. Dopo l’intervento alla tiroide per l’asportazione di un nodulo per Emre Can si avvicinano giorni importanti. Il centrocampista tedesco, infatti, è intenzionato a riprendere ritmi discreti di lavoro già da lunedì 19. Da quel momento, poi, le due settimane che seguiranno saranno necessarie per capire le prime reazioni e la tenuta. Ma intanto Emre Can si sente bene e questa è la cosa più importante: è pronto a tornare dalla Germania e non vede l’ora di dimostrare di essere recuperabilissimo. […]

MERCATO – La speranza di tutti è ovviamente quella che Emre Can possa raggiungere la migliore condizione nel più breve tempo possibile. Ma un club come la Juve non può certo rischiare di farsi trovare impreparato e i sondaggi del ds bianconero Fabio Paratici sono già ripartiti. Alla Juve, nel caso, servirebbe un centrocampista di buon livello e che non costi troppo. Le tracce riportano al nome di Mousa Dembélé, che già l’estate scorsa era rimbalzato in Italia. Il belga è in scadenza con il Tottenham e sarebbe perfetto per fare il quinto (o il sesto) in gruppo come quello bianconero. Il problema è che Dembélé, forte del suo accordo in scadenza, sta pensando di poter chiudere a 31 anni un ricco e lungo contratto con un club orientale, magari cinese, in un mercato dove è riconosciuto ancora come grande campione e dove l’ingaggio sarebbe certamente più alto.
