Ex-Liverpool player Emre Can has spoken out about his Juventus situation after making just three appearances so far this season.
Can said: “I’m not happy [at Juventus] right now. I don’t play much at the moment. “Last season I played a lot. Especially in important games for Juventus. And I also played well there. The German-made the switch to Italy in 2018 on a free transfer after spending four seasons at Liverpool.
“I am definitely grateful to Joachim Low. Because I didn’t play much in the club and he invited me anyway.” Can added.

“Nevertheless, he gave me the chance. That’s why I was simply happy that I played again.” This follows Can’s fury after being omitted from Juventus’ 22-man Champions League squad for the 2019/20 campaign.
Speaking last month, the former Bayer Leverkusen star said: “The fact that I am not in the Champions League squad is extremely shocking for me, mainly because I was promised something different last week.
“There were talks with other clubs [before the transfer window closed] and one of the conditions for me to stay was to be part of the Champions League squad.
“On Tuesday they phoned me and told me, in a conversation that didn’t even last a minute, that I was not on the list and they didn’t give an explanation. That does make me angry and furious because I think that I played well last season, above all in the Champions League.
“I really can’t understand this and will now see what I decide to do from here and I will seek talks with the club next week.”
