Emre Can has given an exclusive interview with the Liverpool FC official site, exclaiming his excitement of playing in front of the Kop in tomorrow's final pre-season friendly with Bundesliga giants, Borussia Dortmund.
"I am really hoping that I can get on the pitch and make my first appearance at Anfield on Sunday," said 20-year-old Can. "I am really looking forward to that.
"I am convinced that Dortmund have strong individuals and strong players; they definitely work well together as a team.
"However, we cannot compare Sunday to what a Champions League game will be like this season, because this is still only a friendly."
Can also took the time out to speak on Liverpool credentials and why he feels the club can make a massive impact on the Champions League, despite a five year absence.
"I am really confident about us going into the Champions League this season," added the Germany youth international, who played seven games in the competition during 2013-14.
"The whole team, the whole club and the city is looking forward to getting back in the Champions League because Liverpool haven't played there for a couple of years.
"I had the pleasure of playing in the Champions League last year with my old club and it's a special thing to play in the Champions League."
