Emre Can comments on his situation at Liverpool this season

Emre Can admits his frustration about his recent bad luck with injuries at Liverpool

Emre Can has admitted that he has been frustrated to watch his Liverpool team-mates in action from the sidelines this season.

Can has endured a frustrating few months at Liverpool after he ruptured ligaments in his ankle against former club Borussia Dortmund last season.

He has since picked up another ankle injury and has only featured for 41 minutes in the Premier League so far this season.

However, the Germany international is now available for selection once again and played the final five minutes of Liverpool’s 2-1 victory at Swansea City in the Premier League last weekend.

Can has admitted that he grows frustrated having to watch on from the sidelines but is now hoping to earn a regular spot in Jurgen Klopp’s side in the coming weeks.

Can is quoted as saying by The Daily Express: “I am a very, very bad watcher! Of course I’m always happy when my team wins, but it’s always different when you play.

“I have to work hard. I have to get fitness back.

“If I get game time – which is always different to training – I have to work hard on my game and get confidence again. That’s very important for me.

“I haven’t played so many minutes this season but of course my target is to play a lot of minutes again.

“It is always better to play and be on the pitch.”
