Emre Can proud to hear Liverpool fans sing his name
Emre Can has stated that he is proud to be a part of Liverpool FC and is delighted that the fans sing a song for him during games.
The 20-year-old has fast become a fan favourite in Liverpool with the Kop chanting “Emre Can, Emre Can, Emre Can”
The tribute song to the normal tune of “Liver-pool, Liver-pool, Liver-pool” was a ringing endorsement of the affection the young German’s performances had already generated.
Can has impressed since arriving in the Summer from Bayer Leverkusen and has established himself as a key member of the squad.
“I realised it during the game and I was massively proud.” Emre Can told the Liverpool Echo.
“Even now, I sometimes think back that I’ve only been here a couple of months and for the fans to sing a song for me is a massive thing for me, it’s really important.
“I’m just proud to be here.”
Can joined Liverpool as a central midfielder from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer 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.
