Lovren IS angry with Barkley over derby foul — but not for the reason you think

Date Posted,April 2, 2017

Dejan Lovren has insisted he only has one problem with Ross Barkley’s Merseyside derby horror tackle – the Everton midfielder’s refusal to apologise afterwards.

Liverpool ’s tough-guy defender wouldn’t condemn England star Barkley after an x-rated game, despite being left with a vicious wound following a late, high, stamping challenge from the Blues midfielder.

It was a no-holds-barred encounter , with Everton’s Ashley Williams also coming under scrutiny after stepping on Emre Can, and two challenges from Barkley that invoked the usual partisan howls of disgust.

Even the visitors’ manager Ronald Koeman admitted his star could have been dismissed – though he did counter with an attack of his own on Reds assistant coach Peter Krawietz, who he confronted in the tunnel afterwards, and accused of making a “crazy” show of trying to get his players sent off.
