Liverpool’s German midfielder Emre Can was recently asked by LFCXtra to name his ultimate 5-a-side team and gave a measured, interesting response!
The 23-year-old immediately named three Brazilians in Coutinho, Lucas and Roberto Firmino, before deciding that James Milner should join him in the five.
Including Coutinho and Firmino is a no-brainer. Their South American flair, ability to beat players and score goals should make them automatic selections.
Milner as well is always the best player in training and his unbelievable fitness would make him a wonderful 5-a-side player, too.
We’re not sure Lucas has the mobility, but perhaps he can sit deep and create a platform for his team-mates.
Can would be a good 5-a-side player too, to be fair, but we don’t know how Adam Lallana could be left out!
He’d surely be the first name on our team-sheet because of his brilliant feet and speed of breakaway.
