Liverpool team news Liverpool news

The former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann has stated that Emre Can is much improved since the appointment of Jurgen Klopp.

Hamann heaped praise on the Germany international and stated that he has benefitted from playing in his favoured midfield position.

“I think he had a very good season for Liverpool,” Hamann told

“He is young, he is still learning but he is a player who would have benefitted because he played more games in the central midfield role because Brendan Rodgers employed him on the right-hand side of a back three.

“Since Klopp came in we have seen some very good performances from him.”

However, Can has featured as a defender for his country, as he did under Rodgers for Liverpool. The former Bayer Leverkusen man has played as a central midfielder under Jurgen Klopp.

Can did play as a full-back and defender under former manager Brendan Rodgers and Germany national team manager Joachim Low has decided to keep him on as a defensive player.

The 22-year-old star is one of two Germany intentional players of Turkish origin in the side – the other being Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil.
