Ex-Liverpool midfielder Didi Hamann slams Emre Can on Twitter

The German was not pleased with Can's performance and behaviour against Everton.

Everton and Liverpool went head-to-head in the Premier League today. The Merseyside Derby clash ended up with both teams sharing the points. They drew 1-1 at Goodison Park with a goal from Romelu Lukaku cancelling out Danny Ings’ opening strike.

A fixture which usually sees plenty of yellow cards, todays should have seen a red. Lucas Leiva was definitely lucky to get away with a cynical trip whilst already on a yellow card late in the game.

But according to a former Liverpool midfielder he was not alone. Didi Hamann, who won the Champions League as a Liverpool player, was not impressed by Emre Can’s antics in the game.

His fellow German got into a silly altercation with Ross Barkley and then moments later felled Gareth Barry with an overhead kick attempt. Hamann felt that was enough for him to receive his marching orders and was highly critical on Twitter…

Can is certainly dividing opinion at the moment for Liverpool. Some think he is an excellent calming influence in a back-three – others feel he is overrated. He was certainly at fault today, getting his clearance all wrong to gift Lukaku the equaliser.

Can will certainly need to improve on that if he is to win over his current doubters.
