Emre Can: Liverpool midfielder James Milner is a 'fighter'

Liverpool youngster Emre Can was full of praise for summer signing James Milner in a recent interview with the Official LFC Magazine.

Can underlined Milner’s willingness to work hard for the team and admitted that he admired how much fight the former Manchester City midfielder has in him.

“I haven’t had too much experience of playing alongside him just yet but it is clear that he is a fighter, is very experienced and is capable of playing good football,” the German told the October edition of the Official LFC Magazine.


The 21-year-old also revealed that Milner is an inspiration to the younger players in the team and that his experience has an advantage this season.

“I have already seen that he passes on what he knows to the younger players. He talks to us a lot and that can only help us,” he added.

“We have a good mix in the Liverpool team. We have got experienced players but also young players.”

Milner joined the Reds from City over the summer as a free transfer and has established himself as a first-team regular in midfield.

Can who played most of last season as a defender has started playing in his preferred midfield role under Brendan Rodgers this season.

Liverpool are currently seventh with seven points after four games and take on Manchester United next at Old Trafford.
