Emre Can has stated that Liverpool have taken a ‘huge step forward’ under new manager Jurgen Klopp.
Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool earlier on this season and has has mixed results.
The Red’s are currently ninth place in the Premier League with 44 points in 29 games. Klopp’s side are in the quarter finals of the Europa League and take on favourites Borussia Dortmund.
“We still have to play one, two matches more than the teams ahead of us, we can still gain a few spots,” Can told kicker (via ESPN).
“Thus we have achieved something under Jurgen Klopp.”
“You should look at the football we have played in recent weeks. We’ve made a huge step forward as a team and have put in good performances most of the time.”
Can has been moved into central midfield under the stewardship Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool but it seems Germany boss Joachim Low has different plans for the young midfield.
Low has used Can as a full-back every time the 22-year-old has been called up for national team duty.
Can has provided two assists and has scored two goals in 43 appearances for Liverpool this season.
