Emre Can – 'Liverpool have fans from all over the world'

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can

Emre Can has admitted he has been surprised with how many fans Liverpool have around the world.

“It’s incredible how big the club is. I saw that in pre-season in America, when I realised there’s an unbelievable number of Liverpool fans all over the world,” Can said.

“My team-mates have made it easy for me.

“They’ve made me feel at home and Liverpool’s a great place. The fans in Liverpool are brilliant and I’ve settled in well. The team is like a family and the club’s great. You can see that straight away and I feel at home.”

Can also revealed that he hopes learning English will help him settle in quicker.

“My English is much better now. I did know a bit of English beforehand, but I’m not fluent. I’m having quite a few English lessons each week and it’s getting better,” Can said.

“There are a lot of foreign players here from Spain and elsewhere and that’s made it easier for me.”

Can joined the Reds from Bayer Leverkusen for £9.75million this summer but injuries have restricted the 20-year-old to just two appearances.

The Liverpool midfielder has nearly returned from his ankle injury and is expected to return to full fitness after the international break.
