Lovren happy with Reds newcomers

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren says the club's new signings are settling in well at Anfield and that he will help them in any way he can.

Lovren feels that Sadio Mane, Joel Matip and Loris Karius have been impressive so far during pre-season training and that the trio understands the significance of playing for the Reds.

"You don't need to talk about that [what it means to play for Liverpool], they know which club they came to and they know what people expect from them," the Croatia international told the club's official website.

"They also saw our games on television. So they know everything about the club, but we are here to help them adapt quicker. For now, they are doing really quite well.

"Every change is difficult in the beginning. I will help them make it easier, like people helped me when I came. It's normal – it's a process of helping each other."

Jurgen Klopp assembled his squad on July 2 to start their intensive preparations, which has thus far included three victories in as many friendlies.

"The lads who were with us last year and are here now know that it is always intensive with Jurgen's training sessions," Lovren added.

"I'm used to it and I think it's quite good because during the game it's intensive; it's not slow-motion. It's normal – you need power and strength and now is the time to work hard so it will be much easier during the season.

"Our bodies will be used to this intensive training. For now, everyone is fit, that's the good thing."
