Klopp reveals source of Emre Can’s problems

Reds boss says calf injury and not contract problems have been affecting young German’s form

Jurgen Klopp believes Emre Can’s contract stand-off with Liverpool hasn’t affected his form as he insisted: “He knows what I want.”

The Germany international’s current deal expires at the end of next season and negotiations with his representative over an extension have stalled.

Can has struggled for consistency so far this term but Klopp says that’s been due to an ongoing calf injury rather than the uncertainty over his future.

“Maybe if he didn’t know what I think it would affect him but he knows what I want,” Klopp said.

Asked if the £10million signing from Bayer Leverkusen remained part of his long-term plans, Klopp added: “I speak to the players, not the press.

“If I say yes it puts pressure on the club to do it immediately. If I say no the player thinks I do not want him any more.

“Emre knows exactly what we want. That’s the only thing that matters.”
