Loyalty and respect is a beautiful, fragile thing in football, particularly from a club’s point of view. There are very few players in the world who will stay at the identical place for their whole career, so most performers will experience a club requiring to get rid of them at least once.
Emre Can didn’t have the best departure from Anfield when he left for Juve, but it looks that he still respects his old club enough to reject Manchester United.
A report from Talksport has seemed at Emre Can’s decision to reject Manchester United, and they point to the circumstances around his departure from the Merseyside Reds. They state that he left on a free and angered a lot of supporters with his decision, so it’s shocking to see him take this stance.
It’s also probable that he just didn’t fancy the move and this was an excellent way to spin things in case he ever wanted to return to Anfield in the future, but it surely seems clear that he won’t be going to Manchester.
It’s a blow for Manchester United because he’s precisely the kind of player they could do with. He’s a great player who can play in midfield or defence so that versatility could’ve been perfect for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
In recent weeks injuries to Paul Pogba, Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay have left them short in those areas, and the German would’ve been able to cover all of those roles.
Liverpool supporters will be hoping he doesn’t make a move to Manchester United after this, or his reputation and legacy at Anfield could be even more tainted.
