Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has spoken about having to sit out of the Red’s clash with Stoke City over the weekend.
The 22-year-old was ruled out with a suspension which he picked up during the Red’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham.
“It’s very disappointing for me. In Germany, it’s not like this, if you have 10 yellow cards [you get] just one game [banned] – but it’s two games [here],” Can told Liverpool’s official website.
“But the most important thing is the team and I think without me it’s no problem. We can win the two games.
“I’m not really good at watching football because I’m always happy when I’m on the pitch and I don’t like watching my teammates, to be honest.”
While Can didn’t receive a red card, the combative midfielder has instead been suspended for two games after accumulating ten yellow cards this season.
Liverpool will also be without Can for next weekend’s clash with Bournemouth.
The Red’s defeated Stoke City by a 4-1 scoreline and host Borussia Dortmund during the week for the return leg in the Europa League.
Can is expected to return to Jurgen Klopp’s starting line-up agaisnt the Bundesliga giants.
