Can suffers ankle injury

German midfielder suffered injury in Europa League thriller

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can may miss the rest of Liverpool's Europa League campaign after suffering an ankle injury in the 5-4 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund on Thursday night.

The 22-year-old, who was replaced on 80 minutes of Thursday's epic 4-3 win at Anfield by Lucas Leiva, left the stadium on crutches and with his right foot in a protective boot.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed in his post-match news conference that Can had suffered an ankle injury, but did not elaborate on the seriousness of the problem.

But Can, who is suspended for Liverpool’s trip to Bournemouth on Sunday, will have a scan on Friday with medical staff worried that the German midfielder has damaged ligaments.

Divock Origi says Klopp was still upbeat at half-time even though Liverpool were 3-1 down on aggregate, and went on to go 4-2 down after 57 minutes.

Liverpool responded by plundering three goals in 24 minutes on a thrilling night of football at Anfield to reach the Europa League semi-finals.

"The manager was very calm, surprisingly calm," the Belgian said.

"That's the class of a big manager. You could see no panic, no stress, he believed in us and in the end it helped.

"He gives us belief and we tried to reward that, the belief of the fans, everything.

"The manager just said that we lived to play in evenings like this.

"We had nothing to lose. We just had to go. We had to play and show our qualities and believe in ourselves and at the end we could win.

"We already know we have qualities and if the rest is in place, then you can play freely.

"A lot of teams have qualities but when you have a good manager who is tactically strong, and have a good club with good fans, then there's no secret. You can achieve great things."
