Emre Can could be fit for Champions League final

  Emre Can could be fit for Champions League final Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has set a deadline for the return of midfielder Emre Can. The German international has been out since March after injuring a bone in his back in the win over Watford. However, Klopp is confident the midfielder will be back in time for the Champions League final. He told The Independent that Can will miss the game at Chelsea but that he expects him to be back in training by Monday so they can assess his situation. “An important day for Emre is next Monday and then we can make the decision if he starts training with us immediately or not. It would only be good news for the final, probably not for the last game of the season.” Liverpool progressed to their first Champions League final for 11 years after beating Roma in midweek and will face Real Madrid in Kiev, who are chasing their third straight Champions League trophy. Klopp’s men are also seeking back-to-back top-four finishes for the first time and they face Chelsea on Sunday knowing that a top four place will be confirmed if they avoid defeat. If Can does get himslef fit for the final, it would likely be his last game for the club as he looks set to join Juventus on a free transfer.

  Can unlikely to make Champions League final Emre Can is looking increasingly unlikely to be back to fitness in time to feature against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League Final, according to The Telegraph. Can is currently in his native Germany, where on Monday he had a scan on his back injury which he received in the 5-0 win at Anfield against Watford. However, the results of the scan were inconclusive and further tests will be taken as to whether he can return to Melwood and start training again next week. If he were to return to Merseyside, which would be next Monday at the very earliest, he would still have just shy of a fortnight to prove he fit for the Champions League Final. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said in a recent interview (via The Telegraph): “Emre will be assessed on Monday to check how it has improved.” “He has done a lot of things and it feels really good but in the end you always need a doctor to tell you, ‘now it’s fine, now you can go again’. That’s the situation. I think he will have a scan on Monday and then we will know more.” “It would be good news for the final.
