Le Tiss: Lovren should apologise to Saints fans

Daily Echo: Dejan Lovren Dejan Lovren

Saints legend Matthew Le Tissier has urged want away centre back Dejan Lovren to apologise to the club and fans over his conduct, if he wants to stay at St Mary’s next season.

The Croatian has attempted to engineer a reported £20 million move to Liverpool by handing in a transfer request and then admitting “my head is already at Liverpool”.

Despite setting his heart on joining Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert at Anfield, he has linked up with Ronald Koeman’s team in Belgium for their pre season tour – suggesting he could have a future on the South Coast.

Club icon Le Tiss, who scored 209 goals in more than 500 appearances at Saints, hit back at the 25-year-old defender, who moved from French side Lyon in £8.5 million deal last summer, by tweeting that he should “keep his trap shut”.

Now, Le Tissier has issued words of advice to the Croatia defender, who had an impressive first season at Saints – including scoring the winning goal against Brendan Rodgers’s side on Merseyside back in September.

The club icon also admitted that he would like Saints to keep Lovren if the player’s attitude changes.

“If he wants to stay then he should apologise to the fans and the club,” he said. “Then I see no reason why he couldn’t stay.

“I made my feelings known through my Twitter account as to how players should behave if they want to get away from a football club.

“I don’t think he went about it in the right way.

“An apology would help first to make sure he gets a decent reception when he steps out on to the pitch.

“He didn’t show a great deal of respect to the football club or for the fans of this football club, so if he is going to stay then it’s in his best interest to apologise first.

Le Tiss added: “Lovren’s a very good footballer at the end of the day. It would be good for us to keep hold of him as long as his head’s in the right place.”

Forest its doesn't matter if he does or does not want to stay.(only the player and club actually know this).He should apologise for his remarks regardless. Until the club announce he is leaving he is still a saint and hopefully he can be professional enough to perform on the pitch. My feeling is that if he does go it will happen after the Liverhampton game.

I can't see him apologising as he still looking to move. It's whether RK can convince him to stay and Saints tell Liverpool that he is not for sale.
If he does stay you have to wonder if his mind will be elsewhere. But the thing that concerns me if we do sell him we don't buy an equivalent quality player.
The time is moving on and all we have done so far is bring players in to replace Lallana and Lambert. But we all know we need another high quality goalkeeper, a CB and another striker.
Let's hope we see some action soon, as we were told they will use the money from player sales for new players so far we have spent under 50 percent of the Shaw and Lallana sales

The problem here, as I see it, is that we have no idea whether he has explained his situation, apologised or is still keen to go, but slagging him off and being abusive isn't exactly going to help him makes his mind up is it? We are quick at believing all of the press hype, but have very little in the way of facts. He will probably look at some of the nonsense that has been posted (by possibly misguided individuals) and will probably think I don't want to play for people like this, we will have lost a very good player for the wrong reasons? Just thinking outside of the box here, as I don't know what happened either.

What is happening to him with us, happened to him at Lyon when Barcelona came in for him. They wouldn't let him go, so he went into a sulk, lost form then came to us at a knock down price of £8.5M. If he stays and we won't let him go, the same thing could happen again and we end up with a player who doesn't want to play for us. Let him go for a big fee. It's the safest option.

You know for sure that this is the situation or are you just another one jumping on the bandwagon? Seems a bit like a lynch mob mentality to me, even if it is all true, perhaps, we should wait for an explanation before we hang him.

I agree with Osprey above - let's trust in the clubs dealings and let them manage it, as social media reaction to press reporting of the situation is never going to be a moderate response.

Hurling abuse at the player and making his position untenable at the club only plays into his hands in pushing for a move and also weakens our position if we do get into a negotiation.

Okay, he can apologise but what if he's lying when he does so? That will amount to a doubling of the offence.

He obviously needs to apologise whilst connected to a lie detector. But what if his agent bribes the lie detector operator beforehand? That would make things triply disrespectful.

No, I think the fans should select and pay an independent lie detector operator - and the apology and test should happen on the pitch before the final St Marys pre season friendly.

Having said that, I'm not sure I can trust the fans to be impartial either as some may hold a grudge against Lovren or want him sold anyway to buy another favoured player.

I will therefore tell Mrs Wilson to tell Ronald that the only way this can be settled is for me to pick the lie detector operator and for the apology and the test to be carried out with just me, the detector operator and Lovren present.

Some one really did a number on this guy three weeks before the world cup he publicly stated he wanted to stay at the club, then someone filled his head with fairy dust about Liverpool, wonder who that could of been?
So much so he put in a transfer request. Swansea are already up in arms about what they see as behind the back approaches for Bony.
The guy wants to leave the word says he will not be able to for under 25 mil. So if they do not come back with that offer all paid on the dot, then he doesn't go.
In my book his best attitude is then to buckle down and play his heart out so someone does offer that. Even some Liverpool fans were not impressed by his outburst. Anyway we will see, Koeman strikes me to be a fair guy but not one to cross.

Just my opinion, but if Lovren had cleared the air, with Ronko, and made it clear he was prepared to stay, wouldn't he or the club, or both, have issued a statement to that effect?
If he still wants to move on, then why the hell are we helping get him match fit, for his next employer? Send him to the farthest corner of Staplewood and make him train alone, then sell him at the very last minute of the transfer window, after seriously messing him around.
Then let his new club spend the next few weeks getting his fitness levels up.

He obviously needs to apologise whilst connected to a lie detector. But what if his agent bribes the lie detector operator beforehand? That would make things triply disrespectful.

No, I think the fans should select and pay an independent lie detector operator - and the apology and test should happen on the pitch before the final St Marys pre season friendly.

Having said that, I'm not sure I can trust the fans to be impartial either as some may hold a grudge against Lovren or want him sold anyway to buy another favoured player.

I will therefore tell Mrs Wilson to tell Ronald that the only way this can be settled is for me to pick the lie detector operator and for the apology and the test to be carried out with just me, the detector operator and Lovren present.
Do we use a polygraph or a Spanish Inquisition?

Wouldn't it be better if Lovren did it by himself with the lie detector and no operator or witnesses. But no, he could bribe himself not to tell the truth if it was either a positive result or a negative result, depending on how much he wanted to stay or get away.

Tricky. Where would we be if the lie detector didn't tell the truth? Would we have to employ another lie detector to test the first lie detector?

I doubt Brenda will be at diverpooh by the Jan window anyway. Hes lost the 1 world class player they had, the vampire even made sturridge look decent. Look at spuds last season, lost bale replaced with lots of average players and sacked the manager when they failed. Once diverpooh get knocked out of Europe Brenda will be shown the boot. He is very suspect tactically as well, blowing the league by refusing to bring on defensive players when they had big leads.

Don't think Dejan will go, Ronnie will get his head right.
Lots of people claiming sky sports news said that we have met caulkers release fee, not seen it myself so don't know how true. Would be an interesting development if it is true. More competition for defensive positions is needed!

Yes, that was an odd comment from DL, but it hasn't been backed up by him saying anything else about it. There is no doubt he has been "got at" and I suspect a bit of foul play from some quarters, but I can't say that for sure as there is no evidence other than hearsay. I am not sure RonKo was criticizing him for what he said or was it the way it came out in public? It was wrong however you look at it, I am straw clutching big time because I want to hang on to him as a player that could do us some good. If things are irreconcilable then get rid for the best price possible, we still win in the end.

There is no doubt he has been "got at" and I suspect a bit of foul play from some quarters, but I can't say that for sure as there is no evidence other than hearsay. I am not sure RonKo was criticizing him for what he said or was it the way it came out in public? It was wrong however you look at it, I am straw clutching big time because I want to hang on to him as a player that could do us some good. If things are irreconcilable then get rid for the best price possible, we still win in the end. OSPREYSAINT

Let us suppose that Dejan Lovren had not made a transfer request; let us suppose that he had not made the unfortunate remark about where his head was. Let us suppose that Ron Koeman does indentify and sign a better central defender before the season starts, and that by Christmas Lovren is contesting a place with the newcomer, Jose Fonte, Yoshida and some lad who has stepped up from the development squad. Let us suppose that the Club decides he is despensible in the January transfer window. Which of the posters on this site is going to be squealing about our “loyalty” then?
We must accept that playing football is a short career and much as Loven’s attitude disappoints me, I cannot think of anything I or anyone else regularly attending St Mary’s have done to earn his loyalty -- remember, Lovren has spent a season playing alongside Gully: how much loyaltly has he been shown?

Oh dear. First Ronny say that no more players are leaving - then MLT states that an apology is needed for the player to stay.

Unfortunately for Matt - he is a better pundit than a manager - and his comments are only inflaming the situation - pushing the player closer to an exit by forcing him into a corner.

The club need some joined up thinking - and maybe need to give MLT more of a role to ensure he stops spouting off.

Agreed.

Grown up people do their apologising and/or bridge building in private not on the back pages of the Daily Mail.

Although I am very frustrated by tge non signing of new players or resolution on current players I really like the fact that we tend not to disclose fees paid for new players.

I suspect that there are no transfers done at the headline cost anyway. Do they include Agent Fees and ad-ons or sale forwards whatever the expression is. Who knows?

The main thing is that we are clearly beginning to run out of time to rebuild a similar squad to last year when we were obviously going to have a stronger one to move forward.

I'm not too good on the finer details but we do feel light by 3/4 players in varios positions and should still have plenty of cash to buy some decent players in

Fast forward one year , Lovren sees that chairman leave , the manager leave , the best 2 players sold , the brightest young star sold . An ambitious club doesn't let those things happen

All hopes and any ambitions of top 4 or Europa league were firmly destroyed the day cortese left . Lovren is a top top player who didnt sign on for mid table mediocrity ...which is the best we can hope for .

Lovren shouldn't have said what he said , but cant be blamed for wanting out . Southamptons hierarchy have shown us all where we are at this summer , its not a place where top players will want to be

Some say Mattie should keep his mouth shut, whereas I say he has as much right to express his opinions as any of us do. Tw@tter by design is a tool to send and receive a full spectrum of public opinions from genius to tw@ts. I don’t believe anyone in the public spotlight would be swayed one way or the other about their future career by such a vehicle. Dejan has firmly made his mind up that he wants to be in the Anfield postcode.

Tw@tter by design is a tool to send and receive a full spectrum of public opinions from genius to tw@ts. I don’t believe anyone in the public spotlight would be swayed one way or the other about their future career by such a vehicle. Dejan has firmly made his mind up that he wants to be in the Anfield postcode. He will not be here next season and we will get top dollar, that is my opinion. Mush On The Beach

How have we covered the loss of of our fantastic young international left back? I didn't see a new player come in.we missed out on the next best young left back in the country,cresswell to west ham.we have just been chasing mercenaries.we have replaced lambert with a 29 year old whom we paid 7million for and we will probably only get a year out of. We also replaced our best player with an unknown player from a weak league,who has no premier league experience.we have a highly young and inexperienced squad and we desperately need players of a higher calibre.
Sammy stop playing with the thumbs up, you are fooling no one.
There was a young player wearing 23 in the 2nd half of the recent friendly that looked quite tidy.

So this is what I think of Lovren The guy was very average when he used to play for Lyon even Jean Michel Aulas chairman of Lyon laugh at us when we bought him for 8.5 million. He move to Saints and had one good season in the EPL and he believe he's a god and want to move to a bigger club with Champions league. This why I miss football from the 90's when a coach could let a senior player rot with the under 15 to teach him a lesson of loyalty and respect. Now you can't do that I wish Ronald Koeman could do it to teach that Twaaat a lesson

He obviously needs to apologise whilst connected to a lie detector. But what if his agent bribes the lie detector operator beforehand? That would make things triply disrespectful.

No, I think the fans should select and pay an independent lie detector operator - and the apology and test should happen on the pitch before the final St Marys pre season friendly.

Having said that, I'm not sure I can trust the fans to be impartial either as some may hold a grudge against Lovren or want him sold anyway to buy another favoured player.

I will therefore tell Mrs Wilson to tell Ronald that the only way this can be settled is for me to pick the lie detector operator and for the apology and the test to be carried out with just me, the detector operator and Lovren present.
But, say you're lying and you don't do it?

Wouldn't it be better if Lovren did it by himself with the lie detector and no operator or witnesses. But no, he could bribe himself not to tell the truth if it was either a positive result or a negative result, depending on how much he wanted to stay or get away.

Tricky. Where would we be if the lie detector didn't tell the truth? Would we have to employ another lie detector to test the first lie detector?

Somebody has just told me Croatia's two main exports are lie detectors and centre backs.
Mmmmm...good points. Sell the bugger then!

I think his error was the 'going public'. Shouldn't have shown us the direspect and should have kept working through a possible move behind closed doors. Ironic really, because he kind of did the right thing by handing in transfer request. Not saying that because want rid of him, but because if you want a transfer then perhaps a formal "request" is the right thing to do. Is is not the case that you waive your right to some bonuses by doing that although on the other hand may be the club would rather you didn't in case it lowered your price - '6 of one half a dozen of the other'. Whatever, once the request was in he should have been discreet.

Your confession of spelling inadequacy is forgiven and truly sacrosanct my son, now for your penance.

Say 3 hail St Marys, treat yourself to a Nandos and keep everyone from afar up to date all season on how the academy prospects are coming along.

The transfer window closes at the end of August. We'll know by then how high the club is aiming, but this time last year, people were questioning the wisdom of signing Wanyama and Lovren, so hopefully the supporters will give any new players a suitable amount of time to settle, before being too judgemental.

Do you know who should apologise? Your mum, that's who.

Seriously, they're calling David Luiz et al the worst Brazilians in living memory. They ain't seen nothing yet.
PTiddyDiv4 is for sure the accident conceived and delivered from a shaven c*nt.
Not Brazilian in style though, more scabby skuntish.
I imagine him to look a bit like one of those weird humanoids that scurry about under buildings in I Am Legend.

(No offence, like.)
Personally, I think Durex should apologise for not providing instructions on the packet as to which part of a skuntdad's body a condom needs to be worn.

No, I think their error was not putting on a warning on the packet that they were not meant to be worn permanently.

RS, in answer to an earlier question about which games we hope to make this year, I was hoping to go to Villa but, of course, Sky has moved it - b4st4rds!

Hull away is all but certain - as long as Sky don't meddle, of course.

Also, sooner than that, maybe QPfrigginharry'sback

*Cheryl Cole sadvoice*

For just £10 - that's less than a pint of beer nowadays, I expect - we can give out a packet of condoms and pay for someone to explain how they work to the confused people of this primitive race. In our lifetime, we could eradicate Skuntisis from our shores so please, please give generously.

I loved that midfield four:

Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.

They weren't as good under their first manager, who would insist on playing 4-3-3, but once they bought Neil Young from Marrakkesh Express and went 4-1-4-1, they were the American Dream.

why do people bother with sammynobrains? you can see hes a WUM and just says derogatory and stupid comments to get people wound up.
if any further proof were needed of his stupidity take a look at all the `thumbs up` votes he got for a extremely idiotic comment about losing out on cresswell and our new signings. 70+ last time I looked. sammynorainss is very stupid indeed if he doesn't think we have spotted the pattern that follows him turning up. to start with perfectly good and sensible comments suddenly drop from several thumbs up to loads of thumbs down, then he posts another stupid comment which gets almost the same amount of thumbs up as the others get thumbs down.
we really should leave him to play with himself, which I expect he does all the time, especially when he comes up with a really really stupid comment.

just to see if people are voting for him or if he is doing it himself, which he is, how about any of you who clicked `thumbs up` for that idiotic comment type your name as a response to this post.
I look forward to reading all of your names.

The reason he publicly came out and stated he was mentally already at Liverpool was because the deal was almost done.

He will unfortunately be sold to Liverpool in the coming weeks for a fee in the region of £22.5 million.

Fast forward one year , Lovren sees that chairman leave , the manager leave , the best 2 players sold , the brightest young star sold . An ambitious club doesn't let those things happen

Lovren shouldn't have said what he said , but cant be blamed for wanting out . Southamptons hierarchy have shown us all where we are at this summer , its not a place where top players will want to be
I think it is probably more about the money than European football, if he wanted European football then why did he leave Lyon, they were already playing European football when he joined saints. You don't think Lovren is going to say he wants to leave because Liverpool have offered him more money do you.

Just for your information 'jason's I respect everyones opinion, as house should mine. However what I don't respect is people who deliberately try to alter the 'voting system's to make their imbecilic WUM comments look popular. As I pointed out there is a regular pattern with the 'voting' when this fool turns up, if your happy with that fine thats your choice. Personally I don't give a flying ........ I'm just making everyone who hasn't noticed it aware of what hes doing. As for him being a WUM you only have to look at his history of comments, a person who insisted that Bruce was our next manager and said he would leave if he wasn't, a person who claimed to be a season ticket holder then claimed to live in Australia and posts all day when its the middle of the night there. If you think they are the actions of a normal person and fan of saints then you are sadly mistaken!

Im not interested in the day to day childish bickering and name calling . I couldn't care less where he is from or any of that nonsense .

As for the voting ...I cant believe anyone would fall for that -you would have to be amazingly silly to believe he was voting himself up that many times . I have seen this thing before on other sites , some guy or sometimes random people would get their scores bumped up by 50 or 100 by someone in the office , just for a laugh .

I saw his post earlier and it had a plus 67 score , 5 minutes after he posted it ..so not possible he did it himself.

If these little things bother you so much , perhaps you should try ignoring , rather than abuse and name calling

They weren't as good under their first manager, who would insist on playing 4-3-3, but once they bought Neil Young from Marrakkesh Express and went 4-1-4-1, they were the American Dream.

I suggest Le Tissier takes his own advice, and "keeps his trap shut".
He didn't cause any delays in the take over. His love of the club clouded his judgement at a time when he would have had no knowledge of the strength of the Liebherr proposition.
I also have it on very good authority that Liebherr/Cortese knew they would own the club as soon as 'exclusivity' was given the Pinnacle clowns.
The last minute save was Cortese's strategy.
I really hope Lovren stays - he is quality and despite what others will have you believe he will be very hard to replace. For starters, Caulker is nowhere near his calibre!

If he does stay you have to wonder if his mind will be elsewhere. But the thing that concerns me if we do sell him we don't buy an equivalent quality player.
The time is moving on and all we have done so far is bring players in to replace Lallana and Lambert. But we all know we need another high quality goalkeeper, a CB and another striker.
Let's hope we see some action soon, as we were told they will use the money from player sales for new players so far we have spent under 50 percent of the Shaw and Lallana sales
And a left back.
We got a good young left back, ward-prowse can play there and I think so can chambers and clyne

It may surprise you to know that some players do follow twitter and even this site, there have been an occasional response, but in the main, the Club doesn't allow them to get involved, that doesn't stop some individuals though.

we really should leave him to play with himself, which I expect he does all the time, especially when he comes up with a really really stupid comment.

just to see if people are voting for him or if he is doing it himself, which he is, how about any of you who clicked `thumbs up` for that idiotic comment type your name as a response to this post.
I look forward to reading all of your names.

Don't worry about it, there is bound to be a clever Richard out there with techy knowledge who can interfere with the site if they feel that way inclined. Didn't someone say they had developed a WUM guard app. that could be used to bar other posters, it's all well above my head. Just stick to posting decent stuff and try not to wind up the natives, they don't like it up 'em.

Fast forward one year , Lovren sees that chairman leave , the manager leave , the best 2 players sold , the brightest young star sold . An ambitious club doesn't let those things happen

Lovren shouldn't have said what he said , but cant be blamed for wanting out . Southamptons hierarchy have shown us all where we are at this summer , its not a place where top players will want to be
I think it is probably more about the money than European football, if he wanted European football then why did he leave Lyon, they were already playing European football when he joined saints. You don't think Lovren is going to say he wants to leave because Liverpool have offered him more money do you.
He wants to leave because Liverpool is and always has been an ambitious club, with a history and trophy cabinet to match.
Your ambition and trophy cabinet didn't seem to impress Suarez did it.
Suarez is a very talented player but a very flawed individual, Liverpool rightly decided that enough was enough and by the way made a very handsome profit in the process.

Is this the same diverpooh who have said they did everything possible to keep him?
Well I suppose you didn't this time though because you didn't ignore the buy-out clause in his contract like last summer!

It's a shame. he is a good defender, but if he really wants to go, then for the good of the team I don't think he should be here. Not much point in fielding a player who isn't inclined to give 100% because they are forced to stay, no matter who is right or wrong.

Well, if he won't apologise, the least he should do when he leaves is take out a one page advert in the Echo and thank the fans for their support.

This is always well received.
