Emre Can has become a fan favourite among Liverpool fans according to the Reds head coach Brendan Rodgers.

The Liverpool manager also praised the young midfielder for his work rate and willingness to get involved with the dirty work.

“You can see from the response of the crowd that they love him. He does the dirty work as well. He doesn’t just play and look nice, he presses the ball and is aggressive,” Rodgers told Liverpool Echo.
