On the last day of the winter transfer window, Emre Can switched from Juventus Turin to Borussia Dortmund. On Friday night the 26-year-old stands before his home debut for the BVB. From 20:30 o’clock, the opponent is Eintracht Frankfurt – a very special game for the native Frankfurter.
“I am extremely looking forward to the game”, says Can in the “Holiday Magazine” of the BVB. Playing for the first time in front of the Yellow Wall can only be something special. I want to enjoy this and celebrate with three points.”
The fact is: a victory must come urgently. In Cans’s first two games for the Dortmund, it played a 2:3 in Bremen and a sensitive 3:4 in Bayer Leverkusen. It was not a bad game against the Werkself, but in the final phase it was “passive” and the success was out of hand, complained the midfielder.
It is better to go against the attempt, especially since the BVB won the last eight home games against the Frankfurters. However, the fact that the SGE 2020 was able to choose four out of five games should warn the Borussians against taking the comparison lightly.
Can is also sure that the men from the main metropolis will be flown by these exploits.” I think the Unity will be courageous because they have not yet lost a game 2020 and because we have lost the last two games,”the German national player made clear. To be successful, you have to approach the game “very focused” and “a little aggressiv e.”
The right foot certainly does not regret its change despite the moderate start. The team has “great potential”, said Can, who added: “This club just fits well with me and I fit well with this club.”
