Liverpool boss Rodgers excited by Emre Can potential

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is delighted with their swoop for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Emre Can.

He returned to training at Harvard University after suffering with a tight calf and the Liverpool manager believes he will be an outstanding purchase.

"I watched him quite a bit last season," said Rodgers. "The only position he didn't play was in goal or centre forward. That tells me everything.

"Sami Hyypia had great trust in him, to play him in important positions in big games. He is a real talent with pace, power and fits our profile perfectly."
