Emre Can has claimed that the opportunity to win trophies on a regular basis was too good to turn down after swapping Liverpool FC for Juventus this summer.

The German midfielder signed for the Serie A champions last month after having been relentless linked with a move to Italy over the last few months.

Can had been a regular fixture in the Liverpool FC team last season but he opted to leave Anfield in search of a new challenge.

Liverpool FC were believed to have been keen to keep Can at the Merseyside club but the 24-year-old rejected new terms before signing for Juventus on a free transfer last month.

Now, the German midfielder has lifted the lid on the real reason why he chose to leave Liverpool FC and sign for Juventus this summer.

Speaking in an interview with the Liverpool Echo, Can said: “I had a lot of offers from very good teams.

“I decided to come to Juventus because I think the project here is very big. They have very big aims. I want to be part of the project here.

“I am really happy to be here. I know how Juventus play, I watched a lot of the games last season. One of my biggest idols was Zidane who played here too.

“My first manager when I started to play football was a huge Juventus fan. When I was six or seven he told me that one day I’d play for Juventus. Now I am here and it’s a cool story.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC will be looking to challenge for the Premier League title next season after the Reds finished in fourth place and without a trophy last term.

The Merseyside outfit are still looking to win their first trophy since their appointment of Jurgen Klopp at Anfield back in 2015.
