During Can’s spell at Bayern Munich, he was mentored by Schweinsteiger who now plays for Liverpool’s Premier League rival’s.
‘Bastian was a great strategist and a very nice team-mate,” Can told the Daily mail.
“He was the first to give the younger players advice and make them comfortable.”
Can was rated the worst player on the field in Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend according to WhoScored.
The 21-year-old had previously made just four defensive errors since joining Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen last season despite playing most of the league campaign as a defender under the command of Brendan Rodgers.
Can has since been deployed as a central midfielder under Klopp and has started every game under the former Borussia Dortmund head coach.
