Juventus excludes German midfielder Emre Can from their Champions League squad.
The 25-year-old German midfielder Emre Can was excluded from Juventus’ 22-man squad by Juventus’ coach Maurizio Sarri for the upcoming season of Champions League.

Juventus’ head coach Maurizio Sarri picked newly-arrived Welshman Aaron Ramsey (from Arsenal) and Frenchman Adrien Rabiot (from PSG) in midfield ahead of Can for the UEFA Champions League.
After the exclusion from Juventus’ squad, Emre Can said, “The fact that I am not in the Champions League squad is extremely shocking for me, mainly because I was promised something different last week.”
He also said, “Yesterday the coach called me and told me in less than a minute that I was not in the squad. I am shocked and angry”.
The 25-year-old midfielder is not happy with management’s decision to left him out from Juventus’ squad for Champions League.
