Emre Can has scored the first goal in Jurgen Klopp’s reign at Liverpool during their game with Rubin Kazan in the Europa League.

Can was in the right place at the right time to knock the ball into the back of the net.

Liverpool drew their opening game 0-0 in Klopp’s first Premier League match on the weekend and Emre Can started in midfield.

Can was played in his preferred midfield role as opposed to spending most of last season as a defender under former head coach Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers was sacked by Liverpool before the international break following the 1-1 draw against Everton in the Merseyside derby and replaced by Klopp shortly after.
