Can: Liverpool better than Leverkusen

Emre Can insists he does not regret moving to Liverpool from Leverkusen, despite the lack of Champions League football. 

A poor start to the season sees the Reds languishing in 10th place after eight league games and resulted in Brendan Rodgers losing his job as manager on Sunday.

However, despite their struggles, Can is convinced he made the right choice in leaving Leverkusen, claiming Liverpool is a bigger club and a better challenge even though they are only in the Europa League, while the Bundesliga outfit reached the Champions League quarter-finals last term.

"I had a super time in Leverkusen and it was definitely the right decision to go from Bayern to there because in Munich I hardly played," Can told ESPN.

"But with all due respect to Leverkusen, Liverpool are another step higher. Liverpool are a bigger club and you can feel the history of the club.

"If you're on the pitch and you hear the fans singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone' you get goosebumps."
