The former Reds midfielder has held nothing back when replying to a post on Twitter regarding his goal haul during his days at Anfield

Emre Can has been trolled by former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann following a comparison between their goal records.

Can was on target in his most recent outing for the Reds, as Jurgen Klopp’s side swept past Maribor 3-0 in the Champions League.

The 23-year-old now has 11 efforts to his name in 143 appearances for Liverpool, a tally which has drawn him level with countryman Hamann – who took in 280 outings during his time on Merseyside.

That fact - with Can reaching the mark in close to 140 fewer appearances - has been put to the latter, drawing a stinging response regarding the respective records of two German stars.

Can is yet to get his hands on any silverware with Liverpool, having joined from Bayern Leverkusen in 2014.

Hamann, meanwhile, enjoyed domestic and European success during his time with the Reds.

He enjoyed two FA Cup wins, two League Cup successes and a Community Shield triumph.

Hamann also played a key role in Liverpool’s remarkable Champions League victory over AC Milan in 2005, stepping off the bench to help them overturn a three-goal deficit and convert from the penalty spot in a shootout.

He also won the UEFA Cup in 2001 and the UEFA Super Cup on two occasions.

Can certainly has some way to go in order to match those achievements, and it remains to be seen how much longer he will be sticking around at Anfield as he continues to head towards free agency in 2018.
