"Playing at a different level" – Many Liverpool fans react to former star's UCL display


Liverpool fans on Twitter have been green with envy since Tuesday night, when their former midfielder Emre Can put in a magical performance for Juventus in the UEFA Champions League.

The German international, who swapped Anfield for the Allianz Stadium last summer, started on the right of a three-man midfield for Max Allegri’s side as they hosted Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their round-of-16 clash, already two goals down from the first.

However, Can helped the Italian champions to overcome the deficit and win 3-0 courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick which booked their place in the quarter-finals, commanding his position in swashbuckling style.

Many Reds fans watched on in awe in their homes at their former player, one of them commenting upon how much they and Jurgen Klopp’s team have missed him this season.

And it may not be the last time in 2018/19 that they are forced to watch the Can heroics they’re now missing out on, with the possibility of meeting his Juve team in the Champions League this campaign a very real one.
