Emre Can admits Liverpool are fully focused on success in the Europa League – and believes victory would put a smile on the city’s face.
Jurgen Klopp’s side claimed a place in the semi-finals of the competition after a dramatic 5-4 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund and now face Spanish side Villarreal for a place in the final next month.
And Can, who left Anfield on crutches following Thursday’s victory, insists the club are hell-bent on winning the Europa League.
“We want to win that trophy,” said Can.
Who do you think will contest the Europa League final?
“There are still good teams left in it and the semi-final won’t be easy but we just have to keep believing in ourselves.
“Going through is a big achievement because Dortmund are such a good team.
“This is a big result and this is for everyone, it’s for the whole city.”
Holders Sevilla, chasing a third successive Europa League title, take on Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk in the other semi-final.
The ties will be played on April 28 and May 5, with Liverpool set to host the second leg.
