Video: Steven Gerrard Appears to Confirm Emre Can is Leaving Liverpool
Germany international Can’s contract runs out at the end of the current season, and negotiations between his camp and the club have been fractious to say the least, with Serie A giants Juventus thought to be interested.
As we’ve told you previously, Liverpool supporters have been very vocal on social media about their desire to see Can sign a new deal, but Gerrard seems to be pretty certain that he’ll be leaving Anfield rather than putting pen-to-paper.
Gerrard is still Under-18 manager at his former club, and speaking on BT Sport before the Reds’ Champions League clash with Porto tonight, he said this:
Oh dear… Stevie G hasn’t just confirmed the future of Emre Can has he? pic.twitter.com/DDr5xWj7Mb

It might just be an innocent slip of the tongue, but you’d imagine Gerrard would have plenty of friends in the corridors of power at Anfield.
If he says Can’s leaving, we’d be inclined to believe him.
What do you think?
