Hyypia backing Emre Can for big Liverpool impact

Former Bayer Leverkusen coach Sami Hyypia is backing Emre Can for success at Liverpool.

The Reds hero has just taken the job at Brighton.

Kop boss Brendan Rodgers snapped up the German Under-21 international in a £9.75million deal from Bayer Leverkusen, which will be rubber-stamped on July 1.

Hyypia said: "He's still a young player, but, physically, he is very ready for big things. He can play a lot of positions."
