Ignore league position, Emre Can tells Liverpool fans

The Reds are currently ninth in the Premier League table.

Liverpool fans need to ignore their current league position as it is not indicative of their progress under Jurgen Klopp, Emre Can has told Kicker, reported by the Liverpool Echo.

The Reds are currently ninth in the table with nine games remaining of the season.

Last time around saw them surrender a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 Southampton in a defeat that all but ended their hopes of sneaking into the top four.

It’s been an inconsistent season under Klopp so far, but Can insists they have already achieved under the German and fans should ignore their current standing.

“We still have to play one, two matches more than the teams ahead of us, we can still gain a few spots,” Can told Kicker, as reported by the Echo.

“So we have achieved something under Jurgen Klopp. You should not look at the standings, [Klopp is] one of the best managers in the world.”

“You should look at the football we have played in recent weeks. We’ve made a huge step forward as a team and have put in good performances most of the time.”

The general consensus now seems to be that next season will be a true indication of how Liverpool will fare under Klopp’s leadership.

The summer transfer window looks to be key, with a number of arrivals and departures having already been hinted at by the rumour mill.

There’s no denying though that things have looked positive since his arrival, and next season could be one of the most exciting for them in some time.
