The German international has been embroiled in a contract stand-off with the club’s hierarchy for a while now, and as soon as January 1 hits, he can negotiate with foreign clubs over signing a pre-contract to join in the summer of 2018.
Perhaps that has contributed to some of the backlash that has poured out on social media this afternoon, with many fans accusing him of being lazy, shoddy, annoyingly slow and, to be perfectly honest, just not good enough to be the man at the centre of Jurgen Klopp’s all-action midfield.
Emre Can has been shoddy once again. #LFC

Is Emre Can injured or when he runs is he holding a big turd in ?
So lacklustre #turtlehead

Emre Can is definitely more Turkish than he is German. Judging purely on his technical abilities.

Is it January yet, so emre can leaves our football club? Such a poor player
— Alex Richards (@AlexRichards18) December 26, 2017
Emre Can needs to leave in January… let him go for free now never mind the summer, after that 1st half performance he isn’t playing for the team no more, his attitude and enthusiasm is non existent and then tries to fake a injury not to come back on. GET RID ??

What do you think of the response to his display today? With Liverpool winning, has he really been as bad as everybody is making out?
What do you think?
