Liverpool’s German midfielder Emre Can has pinned blame on himself after their 2-1 defeat to Manchester United last weekend.
The player didn’t cover himself in glory when he did not help Dejan Lovren mark Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgian striker ran riot in the Liverpool defence with Lovren unable to deal with his physical ability.
Though, the Reds midfield came in for criticism as well as Lovren because of their inability to realise that the player needed to be marked by another player.
Now, Can has accepted some blame for that by explaining that the side were simply not getting to the second balls all afternoon.
Also, he explained that it was simply not a great performance from him personally.
‘It was one of the mistakes we did around the goals,’ he told liverpoolfc.com.
‘The second balls were not good around the two situations where we conceded. In my position, it was not good from me.
‘We have to learn from it and do it better in the next game against Watford.
‘We made very easy mistakes when we conceded the goals; we have to defend better as a team there.
‘It was a very disappointing result but I think we can learn a lot from it.’
‘We don’t go anywhere and say ‘OK, now we will see what happens’. Of course, we want to win the games.
‘We are in the quarter-finals and of course, we have to play from game to game, but we dream a little bit of winning the Champions League.’
Emre Can looks like he doesn’t give a shit
