Emre Can comments on where he must improve for Liverpool

Paisley Gateway

The German has rapidly improved under manager Jurgen Klopp.

Emre Can has highlighted to Liverpool’s official website the areas of his game he must improve in the future.

The German midfielder has impressed this season, building upon the solid first year he enjoyed under Brendan Rodgers a year ago.

He has flourished in a central midfield role with Jurgen Klopp’s influence having seen him grow into a key man in the Reds’ XI.

He is now arguably one of the first names on the team sheet, but despite his improvement, the player insists there are still areas he needs to kick on as he looks to continue his development.

"English football is so quick and you always have a player behind and have to always be 100 per cent concentrated," he told liverpoofc.com.

"The players are very strong [but] I like the football here. I have to change some things. For example, I have to play quicker and be a little stronger than before.”

"I'm just enjoying the time in Liverpool and I want to give my best for Liverpool. I think I'm in a good mood and in good form the last few weeks, but I have to keep going."

If there is one area that Liverpool would be keen to see Can improve in it would be his goalscoring threat.

The Reds have not had a central midfielder that can score often since Gerrard was enjoying his best years at the club.

The likes of James Milner and Jordan Henderson don’t offer that, and so far Can has just two in 55 Premier League games to his name.

If he could boost that total, and continue to shine in his defensive duties, then there is no denying he can be a key man in the Reds’ midfield for a number of years.
