Liverpool midfielder Emre Can reached a personal milestone during the Red’s 0-0 draw with Southampton over the weekend.

The Germany international made his 100th apperances for the Merseyside based club since arriving from Bayer Leverkusen back in 2014.

Can started out as a defender as part of a back three under Brendan Rodgers and has gone onto cement his place in Liverpool’s midfield following the appointment of Jurgen Klopp.

The 22-year-old midfielder spoke with Liverpool’s official website prior to making his 100th appearance for the Reds against Southampton.

“It’s great to play my 100th game for such a big club. It’s a big honour for me,” Liverpool star midfielder Emre Can was quoted as saying by

“I am very thankful to everybody here at the club – the fans, the staff, the staff behind the staff, my teammates and the coaches.

“If I think back to when I first came to Melwood and then played my first game, it’s nice.”

Jurgen Klopp’s side are one point behind leaders Chelsea and take on Sunderland in the Premier League next weekend.

Can was left out of Germany’s national team squad last week and has provided one assist and scored two goals in 11 apperances for Liverpool so far this season.
