Liverpool defender Dejan Lovern has quit the Anfield outfit to join St. Petersburg, according to report.

Lovern joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2014, he helped the Reds to win the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup in his last 14 months at the club, for whom he made 185 appearances.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp “Another Liverpool legend has left the club because he was absolutely a very important part of this team.

“From the first day, I remember when we played with Dortmund against Liverpool in a pre-season friendly and Dejan scored with a header with incredible power.

“That was the image in my mind when I came here and thought about the defenders we had.

“He played super games and scored one of the most important goals of our history, in the 4-3 against Borussia Dortmund.

“A really wonderful moment to share and so many good games, and when he was fit he was very often in the team.

“A great player, great person. He speaks five languages as well.

“Yesterday we said ‘Who is now the best friend of Mo? Because they are real besties. We will miss him, he’s a model athlete. He has everything you need. But now he goes to Russia.”
