Liverpool midfielder-come-defender Emre Can took to social media to wish his followers a happy Eid festival.

Can also shared the same message in Turkish. The Liverpool youngster was born in Germany but is of Turkish descent and is bi-lingual in both languages.

Eid al-Adha is the second of two religious holidays celebrated by Muslims worldwide each year.

The religious holiday centres around the meat from a sacrificed animal being given to the poor and needy.

Can starred in the Reds 2-1 win over League 2 side Carlisle in the Carling Cup yesterday scoring a Panenka in the penalty shoot out to help his side progress to the next round.

The Reds are currently 13th in the Premier League and take on Aston Villa next on Saturday 26 September at Anfield. Can is expected to start in midfield although he was used as a defender in the Carlisle game.
