Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren: Psychologically, I am struggling with myself

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is struggling with the UK's coronavirus lockdown.

The Croatian believes the Premier League season must be allowed to be completed in full, given "80 per cent of the championship" has been played.

Lovren told Sportske Novosti: "Honestly, it's not easy. We have been locked in homes for [over] 46 days!

"We didn't go out anywhere. Psychologically, I am struggling with myself. The hardest thing to do is go through psychologically.

"When it comes to training, I work alone. I'm really a worker, it's not a problem for me to train on my own. But it's totally different when you train alone than when you train on a team.

"You are locked in the house, every day is one and the same.

"I have training devices, I try to maintain myself in various ways. For example, I run up and down stairs, so I do exercises on them. I try to invent exercises, something. We got a training plan from the club, but it's hard."
