Emre Can revealed that he enjoyed the physicality of the Premier League and that he thinks the referees allow the game to flow more than other league.
“In the Premier League every game is a tough game and the bottom team can win against the top team. It’s a lot stronger and faster. For me this is good because I don’t like it if the ref is giving everything as a foul,” Can told the official Liverpool website.
Can joined Liverpool as a central midfielder from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer but has adapted well to playing in a defensive role for the Reds.
The 21-year-old has coped well with the physical side of the game and has been praised for his work rate despite playing most of the league campaign as a key member of a defensive back three and a right-back.
The Liverpool youngster is expected to move into his preferred central midfield role next season with captain Steven Gerrard leaving.
Gerrard is set to leave the club for the MLS after spending his entire professional career at Liverpool.
Can has been called up for the Germany U21 squad ahead of the European Championships this summer.
