3 reasons Emre Can should stay in the Liverpool defence

3. If Aint Broke Don’t Fix It


Former Liverpool player and football pundit Jamie Carragher pretty much summed it up: “He has looked better at the back, long term who knows where he will be but when you are playing this well in a position you have to forget that he is a midfield player and leave him there,” he said speaking on Monday Night Football on Sky Sports. Can has settled in with Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho and formed a sturdy defensive partnership. The 21-year-old could move into midfield next season with Steven Gerrard retiring or perhaps he is just better as a defender.
