Liverpool star is turning into a bargain buy, insists Rodgers

first_img1 Liverpool star Emre Can Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed the emergence of Emre Can at Anfield in recent weeks.The German international took time to settle after his £10million summer move from Bundesliga giants Bayer Leverkusen.But after displaying his versatility by playing in back-three, and excelling, Rodgers believes the investment in the player is looking shrewder by the minute, although has reiterated his feeling the 21-year-old must be given more time to acclimatise to the Premier League.“He will need a bit of time moving to a new country as a young player,” said Rodgers.“You have to remember he had only one full year of playing even though he had come through the system at Bayern Munich.“I think he has shown his value and I think there is no doubt he will prove to be a real bargain for us.“It was a lot of money for a young player but he is a wonderful talent, great footballer, his stature and power is well suited to the Premier League, he is two-footed, has great balance and good aggression in his game and for me is multi-functional.“He will prove to be a player who can play in a number of positions very well here and as you have seen since he came in here he has been outstanding.“He actually played in three positions against Sunderland: he started on the right side of a back three, we moved him up to play in the top of the midfield box and then put him back into a wide midfield role.“It was one of the reasons we brought him here.“He is a footballer and sometimes you find the very best footballers can play in any position and they are capable of working the game out.”last_img read more
