Liverpool’s Emre Can hopes Bayern Munich will regret selling him
Emre Can has said that he hopes Bayern Munich will regret selling him one day. Bayern Munich sold Can to Bayer Leverkusen for €6 million in August 2013.
Leverkusen went on to sell Can to Liverpool FC for €14.5 million in July 2014.
“I left Bayern because I needed some game time really,” Emre Can told the Liverpool Echo.
“It wasn’t an easy step and some people might not have seen it as a step forward because I went to a bit of a smaller club but for me it was the right step to take.
“If I keep on doing what I’ve been doing the last two to three months I’m sure they (Bayern) might regret one day letting me go.
“But I want to make clear that there is nothing that I have against Bayern Munich. They gave me a lot of things, I had a good education there and at the end of the day it was my decision to leave because I wanted more game time.
“There is no bad blood between me and Bayern Munich at all and I thank them a lot for what they’ve done for me.
“It’s very similar at Bayern Munich to Liverpool. The level was really high in the training sessions, especially under Jupp Heynckes with a lot of passing exercises.
“There was a lot of training that was specific to the position you play as well but it’s very similar to what I found here.”
Can has averaged 42 passes per-game in the league at an 83 percent accuracy and makes 2.7 long balls per-match according to Whoscored.
The 21-year-old joined Liverpool as a central midfielder from Bayer Leverkusen but has played much of the season as a key member of Brendan Rodgers three-man defence.
Liverpool have not lost a Premier League game in which Can has started in defence this season.
