Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren slide-tackled his son Josip while they were playing in the back garden during lockdown amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The Croatian centre-back, whose side were runaway Premier League leaders at the time of football’s suspension, captioned the clip on Instagram with:
VAR CHECKING POSSIBLE FOUL YELLOW FOR DIVING
While he executes an inch-perfect tackle that whisks the young boy off his feet, it’s probably not advisable to try this yourselves.
Lovren’s team-mate, deputy goalkeeper Adrian, replied with:
Red card for the defender. It’s dangerous play.
Meanwhile ex-Reds striker Daniel Sturridge commented:
Always saying we dive brate when you knew it was a foul. Smh.
