Report: UEFA Punish Liverpool Star After Spain Comments
UEFA have reportedly punished a Liverpool star over comments he previously made about the Spanish national side.
Accordin to the Mirror, Croatia international Dejan Lovren has been handed a one-match ban for his comments after his side's wide over Spain in the UEFA Nations League.
Following his on-going war of words with Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos, the Red defender was filmed on Instagram calling the La Roja team 'P******'.
Lovren also accused Spain of having a lack of respect for Croatia in their UEFA Nations League tie.
"We showed bigger balls than them," the 29-year-old told reporters after full-time.
"They were rude on the pitch, no fair play. We lost [the reverse fixture] 6-0 but were fair.
"Only [Alvaro] Morata congratulated us now. I've never experienced that and I am glad because they thought they were bigger than us and we proved them wrong."
Lovren was found guilty of insulting behaviour, meaning he will now miss the nation's European Championship qualifier against Azerbaijan.
