Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren says a “disgusting” death threat against his family was sent to him on social media.
The 28-year-old Croat was heavily criticised for his performance in the Reds’ 4-1 Premier League defeat at Tottenham on 22 October.
In an Instagram story, he shared a screengrab of a private message in which the sender said they would “murder” the footballer’s family.
“I cannot ignore when my family is threatened,” said Lovren.
“I just can’t and won’t accept that.”
