Liverpool star Emre Can is aiming to return to full fitness ahead of the Europa League final should the Red’s come through their two-legged semi-final tie against Villareal.
The 22-year-old is recovering ahead of schedule according to the Liverpool Echo. Can was initially expected to be out for six weeks which would have ruled him out for the rest of the season.
Can sustained his injury after falling awkwardly on his ankle during Liverpool’s 4-3 win over Borussia Dortmund in the quarter final’s of the Europa League.
This is Can’s first major injury since joining Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen at the beginning of last season. The 22-year-old was a major part of Klopp’s starting line-up. Can had cemented a place in Liverpool’s first eleven prior to his injury.
Liverpool take on the Spanish outfit Villareal in the Europa League semi finals next week.
