Emre Can reckons Europe’s biggest teams are running scared of Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp’s men secured their return to the Champions League group stages with a convincing win over Hoffenheim.

The Reds won 4-2 at Anfield on Wednesday night to complete a 6-3 aggregate triumph over the German outfit in the qualification showdown.

The Merseysiders will now go into today’s draw alongside Europe’s elite sides – but Can reckons few teams will want to be drawn in the same group as them.

Can, who scored twice in the demolition of Hoffenheim, said: “Of course the big teams will want to avoid Liverpool.

“Everyone knows we are a very strong side. They will have seen what we did against Hoffenheim.

“I don’t have any preference who we get. We know that we will play against big teams but I don’t care who we get.”

The Reds produced some thrilling, attacking football at Anfield to rip the Hoffenheim defence to pieces.

Sadio Mane was outstanding and Can reckons his team-mate has matured into a world class talent.

He added: “Sadio is a world class player. He has so many qualities. He’s a very strong player, he’s a very quick player, he’s always scoring goals and creating chances for the team.

“He’s also a really good guy. His performance against Hoffenheim was brilliant. I am very happy to have him as a team-mate.

“You could say he’s made a big step forward during his time here.”
