‘Emre Can > Messi’ – Liverpool fans react to midfielder’s display for Germany against Chile on social media
Germany were held to a 1-1 draw against Chile in their second Confederations Cup Group B game at Kazan, Russia yesterday.
The draw kept Germany and Chile tied at the top of the table on four points with Cameroon and Australia both on one point.
Liverpool star midfielder Emre Can did not get to start in the 3-2 draw against Australia.
Joachim Low did however, start Can against Chile in central midfield.
We took a look at how Liverpool fans reacted to Can’s display on social media.

Can was pretty much the architect of the equalising goal against Chile.

The midfielder of Turkish origin enjoyed widespread praise for his display and his role in the goal.
When he signs it will feel like a new signing

Emre Can played the full 90 minutes for Germany in their 1-1 draw. From what I saw, he played well in midfield. pic.twitter.com/fi8hstw9qo

It was a tight match and faltered slightly in the 2nd half. My man of the match has to be Emre Can. #GERCHI #ConfederationsCup2017

Good battle in the middle of the park between Emre Can and Vidal. 2 beasts ??

One thing Löw got right: Putting Emre Can in midfield. Looks to be the only guy both strong AND combative enough to cope with Chile’s press

Can’t win over everyone I guess.
Now i get why Germany is trailing.
Jus saw Emre Can on d field#GERCHI #ConfedCup2017

Emre Can is pretty average imo. He won’t develop into anything special, just a regular midfielder for an average club

Fans were calling for a contract again! Can has just 12 months remaining on his Liverpool contract, leading to speculation that he could be headed for a summer exit.
Liverpool fans seem keen on Can extending his contract.
Emre Can needs that contract though. ASAP.

I will give #EmreCan a £120.000 a week salary if I was @LFC. He’s a beast when he’s injury free.
