Can couldn’t hide his excitement claiming,“I am starting an exciting new chapter in my footballing career. It’s a dream come true to become a member of the LFC family! This support of the fans, the history and the great team! What a Club!”
“I am going to do everything to win trophies. I thank Brendan Rodgers for his trust! I will be wearing the number 23, Jamie Carraghers number. What an honour. Looking forward to meeting my teammates and fans”
