Liverpool must aim for 100% every game, says Emre Can

Paisley Gateway

The midfielder thinks Jurgen Klopp's style suits him down to the ground.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Emre Can says that the side must look to 'give 100% in every game' under Jurgen Klopp.

The German has made an immediate impression on his new side, with his first game against Tottenham Hotspur having seen them run and press more than they have all season.

They became the first side to out-work Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season, an impressive feat given that the north London outfit have dominated those particular statistics this season.

And Can says they cannot afford to let those standards slip if they are to live up to expectations and deliver tangible rewards.

“I think we’ll want to keep playing football this way. We want to be able to press in every game and not just in one match because there’s a new coach,” he told liverpoolfc.com.

“But the aim for the team must be to give 100 per cent every game and do what the coach asks of us. We know we’ve got more quality and it’s up to us to create more chances to put us in a position to score more goals.”

Klopp’s arrival at Anfield has been greeted with optimism by both fans and players alike at Anfield, with many looking forward to seeing the effect he has on the squad.

His hands on and lively approach has already gone down well, with many having been entertained by his performance on the touchline in the 0-0 draw with Spurs last weekend.

And Can says he enjoys working under a coach of that ilk, saying it suits him perfectly.

“He’s completely different from other coaches, he is more emotional and he’ll put his arm round you,” he added.

“I definitely enjoy working with a coach like that. He is always keen to help and I find that very positive. I like the way he works and it suits me down to the ground.”
