Croatia defender Lovren again slams English media: Why the Tottenham question?

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren had another swipe at English reporters following Croatia's World Cup semifinal victory over England.

Lovren snapped at one journalist who raised his first-half substitution last season at Tottenham going into the game.

Asked if he felt extra motivation to prove himself, with so many questioning his ability, Lovren said: “Yes, and I think I've done that without being arrogant.

“I think definitely, if you're in the final, you're part of the two best teams in the world.

“Before the game I received a question like 'what do you think about the 4-1?' [Liverpool's defeat away to Spurs last season].

“I really don't understand these questions, always looking back to where I made some mistakes. I really don't understand.

“There's too much about me. But whatever, this is what gets me more motivated to work harder and prove everyone wrong - everyone."
