Liverpool defender Lovren lifts lid on 'horrific' home invasions

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren says his family have endured a "horrific" few months after two home invasions.

Lovren insists he isn't seeking excuses for for his form this season, but says life for footballers extend beyond the pitch.

“People look (only at) football, they don't look what is going on around the life. Unfortunately my wife was in and two kids. It was horrific," he said of the break-in.

“It is not easy because we are also humans. Everyone has problems, I don't know who hasn't had some.

“I am giving my best to have a quiet life but sometimes it doesn't depend on myself because people just want to come into my home and steal some things, even though I have nothing in my home!

“I think I responded quite well even with some different things around my life, burglars and things like that, so it wasn't quite easy for me especially in October. It depends on the person."
