Can ended up being one of Rodgers best performing signings following the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.
The 21-year-old stated that Liverpool are a step up compared to Bayer and that he took the right move in terms of career progression.
“But with all due respect to Leverkusen, Liverpool are another step higher. Liverpool are a bigger club and you can feel the history of the club,” Can was quoted as saying by ESPN.
Despite Can’s comments Bayer reached the Champions League quarter-finals last season and are in the group stages this season while Liverpool are in the Europa League.
Rogers has however, been sacked as Liverpool manager and Germany coach Jurgen Klopp was recently appointed as his replacement.
Can played against Klopp’s Dortmund side whilst in Germany but has never been managed by the enigmatic coach.
The 21-year-old is currently on international duty with the Germany national team and is one of three players of Turkish origin in the side – the others being Mesut Özil and İlkay Gündoğan.
