Liverpool hero McDermott: Emre Can and his contract? That's a strange one for me

Published on: 14 March 2018

Liverpool hero Terry McDermott is baffled by Emre Can's plans to leave Anfield.

The German midfielder, who has failed to agree an extension with the club, is a free agent this summer and is likely to leave with Juventus leading the chase for his signature.

"That's a strange one for me," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"I can't understand why he would want to leave Liverpool. I know that foreign players don't have the same affinity with the club as local lads like Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Phil Thompson or myself. We were heartbroken when the day came that we had to move on.

"But Can is playing every week for a manager who trusts him, he's earning a lot of money and he's part of an exciting team.

"Maybe he thinks he can get more money elsewhere but walking away would be a gamble because Liverpool are getting better and better under Klopp."
