Former Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has offered accommodation to families affected by an earthquake in Croatia.

A 12-year-old girl was killed in the badly damaged town of Petrinja.

“Dear citizens of Petrinja, I am making my hotel in Novalja available to the 16 most endangered families,” Lovren wrote on Instagram.

“If you need temporary accommodation, contact my team,” the Croatia defender – who now plays for Zenit St Petersburg – added.

Chelsea and Croatia midfielder Mateo Kovacic has also pledged to support those affected by the 6.4-magnitude earthquake.
