Watford FC manager more concerned by Liverpool star Emre Can than Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool team news

Watford FC manager Quique Sanchez Flores has stated that he is thinking about the threat posed by Emre Can and his teammates ahead of Sunday’s clash with Liverpool.

The Hornets are currently on an impressive run of form which has seen them win their last three league games. The newly promoted side find themselves in seventh place with 25 points after 16 games.

“Klopp is a very positive manager and he’s always thinking about good, offensive football,” the Spaniard was quoted as saying by Eurosport.


“He wants to learn about the Premier League and it is new for him.

“But I’m not thinking too much about the coach, I’m thinking about Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Christian Benteke. That’s more important than thoughts of Jurgen Klopp.”

Can is expected to keep his place in Liverpool’s starting line-up when the Red’s take on Watford tomorrow.

The 21-year-old has been a constant feature in Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI since the German manager’s appointment.  Klopp has opted to use Can primarily in midfield whereas the Red’s former manager Brendan Rodgers frequently played the 21-year-old in defence.

Liverpool sit in ninth place with 24 points in 16 games in the league and have gone two weeks without a win. The Red’s can move up to fifth place with a win tomorrow depending on results of other sides.
