Dejan Lovren

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has been criticised by road safety experts after breaking the law four times in a carpool video.

The Reds centre-back was filmed by Liverpool’s official TV station with Serbian team mates Marko Grujic and Lazar Markovic driving around the city.

Lovren is pictured by the Mirror using a mobile phone while driving, removing both hands from the steering wheel, driving without due care and attention and one passenger is seen not wearing a seatbelt.

Road safety charity spokesman Jack Kushner condemned the centre-back. He told The Sun: “It’s disappointing to see somebody who is a role model driving in such an irresponsible manner.”

The police are understood to be reviewing the footage and will be assessing whether any further action might be necessary.

The stopper has played 82 times for the Merseyside outfit since his move from Southampton to Liverpool in 2014, scoring three goals in that time.

The defender has featured prominently this season under Jurgen Klopp, playing 450 minutes of football across five matches.

Klopp’s side have started their new campaign in style this season, already beating Leicester, Chelsea and Arsenal in the Premier League.

The Reds currently sit in fourth place in the table after taking 13 points from their first six games.

Klopp’s side travel to Wales on Saturday to take on Swansea at the Liberty stadium.
