Can is out of contract this summer and despite protracted attempts to renew his Anfield deal, Liverpool have eventually admitted defeat in their quest to keep hold of the German midfielder.

Because of the logistics involved, complicated by the city hosting the Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta and the Bordeaux Wine Festival the same weekend, proposals have already been drawn up ahead of Jurgen Klopp's side playing Real Madrid in Kiev on May 26. And we've had the feeling throughout the [run] that we could have scored at least two goals per game. And we conceded a goal right at the beginning of the game. We managed to lead 5-0 at home.

Liverpool signed Emre Can in 2014 from Leverkusen for a fee of £9.75m, and has played 166 times since then and scored 14 goals for the Reds.

"We're in a very nice surrounding, but we're not here because of the weather - it was not the reason to say we don't go to the south because the weather in England has been good as well - but too many things; too many people want too many things from us in the moment". That's really [crazy], because we aren't Barcelona, we aren't Real Madrid or Bayern Munich.

It remains to be seen whether Bale will be awarded a starting berth by Zinedine Zidane for the Champions League final, with the 28-year-old having been benched at times this season.

The Ponder Independent School District said it was placed on "heightened alert", but the area was later determined to be secure. One person was taken to a local hospital in unknown condition, the newspaper said, citing Hinojosa. "I see them dead".

"We aren't anyone else".

"We're keeping everything crossed for the final and hope the team and the fans do Liverpool proud in Kiev as they have throughout the competition". And performing at such a high level is very cool.

Many pundits expected the Reds to fall by the wayside when they met Manchester city in the quarter-finals. "But, after all, we've earned our place here".

It means the game with Liverpool could take place in a stadium not filled to capacity.
