Liverpool Player Gets Slated On Twitter, Despite 5-0 Win Against Swansea
The German international has been embroiled in a contract stand-off with the club's hierarchy for a while now, and as soon as January 1 hits, he can negotiate with foreign clubs over signing a pre-contract to join in the summer of 2018.
Perhaps that has contributed to some of the backlash that has poured out on social media this afternoon, with many fans accusing him of being lazy, shoddy, annoyingly slow and, to be perfectly honest, just not good enough to be the man at the centre of Jurgen Klopp's all-action midfield.
Here are some reactions from Twitter this evening:
Emre Can is playing like he's already imagining Buffon's nonna plating him a nice serving of pasta arrabiata.- Paul (@Kolology) December 26, 2017
Emre Can not having a good game and was horrible last time out at Anfield as well.- Empire of the Kop (@empireofthekop) December 26, 2017

He needs taking out of the squad completely. He is too slow with the ball- GAZ MITTON (@GAZMITTON) December 26, 2017
Is Emre Can injured or when he runs is he holding a big turd in ?- Jason Robinson (@jasorobinsonlfc) December 26, 2017
So lacklustre #turtlehead
Emre Can ruining rather than running the midfield today- Ashtaad (@BawaaOnTheRocks) December 26, 2017
Emre Can needs to leave in January... let him go for free now never mind the summer, after that 1st half performance he isn't playing for the team no more, his attitude and enthusiasm is non existent and then tries to fake a injury not to come back on.

What do you think of the response to his display today? With Liverpool winning, has he really been as bad as everybody is making out?
