Emre Can slams Liverpool's poor defensive record

Emre Can slams Liverpool's poor defensive record”

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Alex Manninger has urged Juventus to sign Emre Can when his contract expires next summer, as the Italian champions would not be "making a mistake" if they made a decision to pry the midfielder away from Merseyside.

"It's definitely a fact that we have recently defended badly and conceded too many goals", he told SportBild.

"I've read a stat which shows that we had 120 shots in the past seven matches, and we only scored seven goals (sic)", Can said. I still believe that if we had scored those goals then we would have those matches and nobody would talk about our defence. We nearly dominated the opponents in all games and were the better team.

The 23-year-old was courted as a possible long term replace for Sami Khedira who only has a year left on his contract as the Bianconeri make the Champions League their priority for the season, having come so close to wining the trophy earlier this year.

"Jurgen Klopp is convinced that we only need that bit of luck to get back to winning ways".

Jurgen Klopp, manager of Liverpool, looks on prior to the UEFA Champions League group E match against Spartak Moskva.

"At Liverpool, however, nobody questions the coach".

Under current manager Jurgen Klopp, Can has developed into a key figure in the centre of the park and has proven to be a promising box-to-box midfielder. As a team, we all want to work with him. "We play good football and follow his plan".

Liverpool now sit seven points back of the Premier League leaders Manchester City after just seven games and the finger of blame has largely been pointed at the Reds' poor defence.
