Some Liverpool fans have hit out at Emre Can for his performance in Wednesday's 3-0 win at Stoke.
The Germany midfielder started ahead of Jordan Henderson in Livepool's number six role but the towering figure continues to divide Reds supporters.
The 23-year-old was his commanding self out of possession, but on the ball he looked a tad sloppy and misplaced 18 passes throughout his 90-minute stint in the Potteries.
Can has been linked with a move to Juventus as he continues to refuse a contract extension and, by the sound of some fans on Twitter, they wouldn't mind if Jurgen Klopp sold up in January.
He just didn't sign a new contract and basically put the club in an Emre Can type situation but they decided to sell asap— عبد الحميد (@AbdxlA) November 29, 2017
Increasingly baffled by what the likes of City, Juve, etc. see in Emre 'One Good Game In Five' Can. A handicap for bragging rights, surely.— Laughing Snake (@varunb7) November 29, 2017
Admittedly, "We won a league with Emre Can", has an impressive appeal to it.
Emre Can just had thirty yards or space to stroll into so naturally he took the ball, span 270 and dribbled behind the nearest available Stoke striker.— xSS29 (@SamStatham29) November 29, 2017

Emre Can is a bum.— Black Mamba (@OriginalOLAJ) November 29, 2017
Why does emre can think he's usain bolt every time he gets the ball thinking he can smoke players— Craig Jowett (@craigjowett1) November 29, 2017
I’d have Joe Allen over Emre Can any day— Ben Williams (@BenWill747) November 29, 2017
Still think Joe Allen is better than Emre Can. #LFC— Vaibhav Shah (@Aviation_Freak) November 29, 2017
Emre Can isnt much to worry about losing on a free! Not good enough him!— Michael McNally (@McNally23) November 29, 2017
Can, who joined Liverpool for £10 million under Brendan Rodgers in 2014, clearly does have his uses, and some other fans of the Anfield club have praised him on Twitter.
Emre Can is so much better in this central role. He thrives when Henderson isn't in the team. #STOLIV— David Purcell (@DavidPurcell96) November 29, 2017
Emre Can was outstanding tonight, showed how that role should be played. #lfc— Steven Walsh (@guffy82) November 29, 2017
All Emre Can haters have been quite today— Red Kash (@arif_kash) November 29, 2017
Emre Can is better at number 6 role than Henderson.— HH (@HakeemHatta) November 29, 2017
Such contrasting views perfectly sum up how divisive he is, but Klopp is obviously a big fan and his is the only opinion that counts at the end of the day.
