Emre Can has admitted that he needs to improve on last season’s poor return of one Premier League goal and zero assists.
The 21-year-old often played in defence last season but has started Liverpool’s last two matches in the centre of midfield.
“I want to do more in attack and I know I can improve in that area of my game. I want to do much more going forward in terms of scoring goals and providing assists,” Can told the club’s official website.
“I’m trying to bring that into my game and I’m working on it in training.
“I always try to do my best and put in the running and help out in defence. I’m determined to work hard in defence and in attack.
“I think every player aims to get in the starting XI so I work hard in training and I always try to show what I can do and impress the manager so he picks me.
“At the end of the day I think the competition for places is good for the team.
“I’m ready to take more responsibility as I’m in my second season. My English is improving and I’ve matured as a player.
“Playing in midfield means you have to take more responsibility. That means I want to score more goals and help the team to get results.”
