Can desperate to earn Liverpool starting spot

SoccerNews in English Premier League 8 Oct 2016


Emre Can is determined to regain his place in the Liverpool team, admitting it has been frustrating to have had a watching brief in recent weeks.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have made a fine start to the Premier League season, beating Arsenal, Leicester City and Chelsea to climb to fourth in the table, netting 18 goals along the way.

However, Germany international Can, a regular for Liverpool in the previous two campaigns, is yet to start a league game and knows he must work hard to change that.

“I am a very, very bad watcher,” he told the club’s official website. “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. For me, it has been a little bit unlucky so far this season because I came back a little bit late and had a very short break after the Euros.

“Then I came back and got an injury. The team did very well and then I came back and it was not easy to get back into the team.

“Now I have to continue the work, I have to work hard. And I am confident enough that if I am ready and fit, I will play one day.”

Liverpool welcome fierce rivals Manchester United to Anfield after the international break.
