Kolo Toure tips Emre Can to be Liverpool captain ahead of Jordan Henderson
Liverpool’s veteran defender Kolo Toure has tipped Emre Can to be Liverpool captain ahead of Jordan Henderson.
The Ivorian international has been impressed by the Can’s progress since joining the Reds last summer and stated that Emre Can will be “a king” at Anfield.
“He’s a leader, when you’re on the pitch, you can see that by the way he plays. He is really confident and he talks on the pitch as well,” Toure was quoted as saying in the Mirror.
“Right now, Jordan Henderson is very good, but there’s’ no doubt this boy is going to be a king here. He is a top player, who can make a difference in games”
The 21-year-old Germany U21 international was one of Liverpool’s few notable performers in the FA Cup draw against Blackburn on Sunday.
Can has one goal and one assist in 29 appearances in all competitions this season for Liverpool.
The Reds are currently fifth in the Premier League just two points off a top four spot.
