Emre Can has paid tribute to Liverpool after sealing a free transfer to Juventus on Thursday.
The German international in Turin to sign a four-year deal with the Italian giants, bringing an end to his four-year spell at Anfield.
Having made over 150 appearances at the club, Can understandably feels a great deal of affection for the club he is leaving behind, and has told Liverpool fans that “a piece of his heart will always be at the club” in a short video posted on his Instagram account.
“Today is the first day of a new chapter of my life,
“I want to say thank you to all the people of Liverpool, to my coaches, to the staff, to the staff behind the staff, the supporters, to everyone.
“I will always think back with a smile and one piece of my heart will always be in Liverpool.
“It was a big honour for me to play for Liverpool. I hope to see you one day again.
“Take care. Yours Emre.”
Can was brought to Liverpool in a £9.75m deal from Bayer Leverkusen in 2014. He didn’t win any silverware at Anfield, but he was on the losing side on the League Cup and Europa League finals of 2016, as well as last month’s Champions League final (in which he came on as a sub for his first appearance in more than two months).
