Emre Can told Goal that Jurgen Klopp was disappointed about his decision to leave Liverpool but supporters on Twitter have shown they don’t care at all.
He said: “He was disappointed [Klopp]. He wanted me to stay in Liverpool but accepted my decision.
“He also knew that it was not a decision against him or against Liverpool, but for a new challenge at Juventus.”
Supporters on Twitter have reacted to the German’s comments, with a fair few suggesting that they’ve barely noticed he’s been gone. Liverpool signed Fabinho days after the end of the 17/18 season and has been amazing for the Reds since.
Since arriving from AS Monaco for a £43m fee, Fabinho has quickly made himself indispensable to Klopp. The best midfield available to the boss features the 25-year-old as the no.6 with Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita operating further forward.
Commenting on Twitter, Liverpool fans have suggested that the German hasn’t been missed at all.
Anyone remember Emre Can????

The best part about getting a new phone? Every time I type “can” now, my autocorrect doesn’t capitalize it.

Fabinho is better anyway, he's not missed

Imo Fabinho gave us more quality in couple of months than he did in 4 years.

While he might not be missed at Liverpool, it needs to be appreciated that he acted professionally towards the end of his time with the Reds unlike some that have left the club.
He refused to sign a new contract and that might seem like a slap in the face to some supporters but it’s a long shot better than faking injury, conducting unsanctioned interviews right before major games or refusing to play.
Fabinho has certainly plugged the gap he left but it will be difficult to forget the incredible overhead kick he scored against Watford that proved hugely important in Liverpool’s bid to secure Champions League qualification at the end of the 2016/17 season.
