Revealed: Liverpool star admits he was dreadful in January

Emre Can was the star of the show during Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over Burnley on Sunday.

The 22-year-old midfielder played an important defensive role for his side and scored the Reds winning goal.

Can’s goal was a sensational strike from outside the area into the bottom corner and his celebration was all the more impressive (Watch it here!).

The Germany international has been struggling in recent months and acknowledged his poor form after the game.

“I know I had a very tough period, I had not too much confidence in the last few weeks and it was not my best performance,” Emre Can told

“But I had the feeling I would come back, I had the feeling that I was getting strong again, and I know what I am able to do when I am fit, when I’m pain-free,”

“Today it was a step forward and I have to keep it up. I had problems with my calf and I didn’t want to [have] a break and the manager didn’t want it, I wanted to help my team.

“Maybe it didn’t help the team too much and myself as well but I’m very happy today, it was good, I felt good again, and that’s the most important [thing].

“If I feel good, if I feel strong, then I know what I’m able to do.

“It was a really big three points because in the past we lost that kind of match and today we won the match,” he added.

“We know it was not our best game but at this stage it’s very important to get the three points and we got it. We’re very happy.

“It’s very important to get the three points and sometimes to get them dirty, like today.

“It was a very tough game because Burnley did very well – they were very strong in the air and they were clever, I think. It was not easy but we got the three points and that’s the most important [thing].”

Can looks set to keep his place in Liverpool’s starting lineup seeing that Jordan Henderson is unlikely to recover in time for Liverpool’s trip to Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s side sit in fifth place in the Premier League and are five points ahead of Arsenal.

Emre Can has has three assists and four goals to his name in 30 apperances for the Merseyside club this season.
