Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hailed the departing Dejan Lovren as a "legend".

The Croatian defender has completed a 12-million Euro move to Zenit Saint Petersburg after six seasons with the Premier League champions.

"Another Liverpool legend who leaves the club, because he was absolutely a very, very important part of this team from the first day since I was in," Klopp said of Lovren on Liverpool's official website.

"When he was fit, he was very, very, very often in the team. A great player and a great person. Really good, in the air a machine, and I really liked working together with him.

"It will be interesting to follow Zenit St. Petersburg now. I wish him the best of luck.

"He played super games and scored one of the most important goals of our history in the 4-3 against Borussia Dortmund; a really wonderful moment to share.

"He had so many good games. Yes, I think he will not like the Tottenham game when I took him off in the first half, but it is part of football and part of development - and he always came back."

Lovren made just 15 appearances this term and departs Anfield having won the Premier League and Champions League.
