Can played the full 90 minutes during Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of their rivals Manchester United in the Premier League. Emre Can can go onto become a world class player according to the former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore.
Collymore went onto say that Can has to develop both his attacking and defensive side of his game.
“Emre Can, for me, can go onto be a world class central midfielder, but forget a defensive or attacking role,” Collymore told the Boylesport blog.
“He just needs to do what Dele Alli is doing at Spurs which is so eye catching; namely do both, and do them well.”
Can spent the majority of last season playing either on the right hand side of a three man defence or at right-back under the Red’s previous manager Brendan Rodgers.
However, since the appointment of Jurgen Klopp, Emre Can has been a permanent fixture in Liverpool’s three-man midfield.
Liverpool dropped down to ninth place following todays defeat while united moved up into fifth place, two points behind Tottenham.
