Emre Can: Liverpool owe fans a flying start after Stoke battering last season

The German and Liverpool midfielder says that Reds are determined to give Liverpool fans a flying start to atone for their miserable performance last season.

Emre Can bragged that if Liverpool perform well in their opening fixtures, they can even go on to compete for the Premier League title.

“We didn’t end the last season particularly well and I think we owe it to the fans to make amends,” Can told Liverpool’s official website.

“This is why the first few matches are especially important. I think we can start to put [the Stoke defeat] right with a few good results.

“We’ve a very very strong team, with a lot of good-quality players who work together well as a team.

“I think, if we can start well and get a few good results under our belt, we can then keep our focus on each match as it comes and hopefully compete for the title.”

The 21-year-old had an impressive 2014-15 season with the Merseyside club, making 27 appearances in his debut season.
