Emre Can has settled in well at Liverpool says Lallana [divider]
Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has settled in well according to his teammate Adam Lallana.
“It was always going to take a little bit of time as they’re young players. Now they’ve settled in we’re starting to see the rewards,” Lallana was quoted as saying by the Daily Star.
“You look at the likes of Lazar and Emre, a lot of the new players are settling in well and we’re seeing that out on the field.”
Can joined the Reds on a £9.75 million move from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer and has started in Liverpool’s last 12 games but did struggle for playing playing time early on.
The 21-year-old was used sparingly for much of the early part of the season and also struggled with injuries.
Can was initially signed as a midfielder but has adapted well to his new role as a defender.
The former Bayer player did play in defensive roles from time to time in Germany but was primarily a midfielder.
Can has made a total of one goal and an assist in 22 appearances for the Reds in all competitions this season.
