Liverpool Fans Furious With Star Player's New Contract Demands
Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has rubbed the club's fans up the wrong way - after stories emerged claiming he'd demanded a release clause in his new contract.
The 23-year-old Germany international has started the season in blistering form and finally looks like developing into the dominant all-round midfielder that his potential has hinted at for several years.
But his current contract runs out in the summer of 2018, and in order to avoid losing his for free, the club's board have been trying hard to negotiate a new deal - only for talks to hit a brick wall.
According to ESPN, the impasse isn't over his wages but rather a release clause Can insists is inserted in the contract.
He's been linked with Juventus recently and judging by the reaction on social media, Reds fans might've turned on his a bit:
Emre can go fuck himself . Seen the coutinho drama and realised he wants a release clause- STE (@irishRedYNWAste) September 6, 2017
Emre can fuck off then if he wants to leave naby will bench him anyways- ⛈ (@rvpisarapist) September 6, 2017
Emre can fuck off- :flag_br: (@leonalcan) September 6, 2017
Absolute cunts trick if thats what Emre Can has planned. Develop a player for 3 years just for Juve to take him for fuck all! #LFC- Five Times (@jbr304) September 3, 2017
Emre Can has been at #LFC for four years and has only started performing recently. Asking for a release clause is insulting. Let him go.- Sherlin (@SherlinGovender) September 6, 2017

Emre Can wants to use Liverpool for game time and exposure. He is using the club as a stepping stone. We need to kill that culture off. https://t.co/LSMmDzcJZP- Sherlin (@SherlinGovender) September 6, 2017
Exactly - Emre Can is great, I get that - but if he wants out fuck him, he's most definitely replaceable ffs- Andy :red_circle: (@Andy_LFC93) September 6, 2017
Not sure what Emre Can has done to demand anything in his contract, he should feel lucky that he's playing for the club.- David Hickman (@DavidHickman87) September 6, 2017
Disappointed in the Emre Can contract saga! No winners sadly certainly not LFC and the fans yet again a player living by his job title 1/2- Gaz Hughes (@GazHughes78) September 6, 2017
What's weirdest about Emre Can situation is that Juve do not pay massive wages. €150k/w Higuain is top earner. Dybala on €60k/w, Buffon €80k- Empire of the Kop (@empireofthekop) September 6, 2017
Fuck Emre Can. Acting as if he's done anything for LFC. He's been a part of our worst midfield in years- T.C (@myinfoforall) September 6, 2017
What do you think of the reaction? And should Liverpool grant his demands to avoid losing him for free?
