Emre Can joined his relatives and friends for a “family dinner” just days after the Liverpool midfielder landed himself in hot water for eating a pizza.

The Germany Under-21 international joined his team-mates for the Italian favourite in the hours leading up to their heavy 5-0 defeat by Portugal in the European championship semi-final.

Can, who was joined by his fellow Germany Under-21 colleagues Moritz Leitner, Leonardo Bittencourt, Nico Schulz and Yunus Malli, defended their actions after criticism from team-mate Matthias Ginter.

But the Liverpool midfielder was steering clear of controversy on Wednesday night after he was snapped eating dinner with family and friends in a cosy restaurant.

Can’s friend, named cnyt on Instagram, wrote: “Family Dinner #dinner #iftar #frankfurt #höchst #urfa #emrecan #family #ynwa”

The 21-year-old ended his first Premier League campaign with a whimper after he produced a disastrous performance in Liverpool’s resounding 6-1 defeat by Stoke City at Britannia Stadium on the final day of the season.

However, the German youngster was one of Brendan Rodgers’s better signings from last summer after he helped to improve the Liverpool defence midway through the campaign.
