Emre Can (born 12 January 1994) is a German footballer who plays as a midfielder for Bayern Munich II in the Regionalliga.
Emre Can plays as a midfielder for
Bayern Munich II in the Regionalliga, which is the fourth German league, after being relegated from the 3. Fußball-Liga in the 2010–11 season. He has yet to make his Bundesliga debut, although even Bayern Munich chairman Uli Hoeneß confirms that Can is "the midfielder of the future and a jewel for Bayern Munich".
Can received call-ups for the German U15, U16 and U17
youth football teams. In the FIFA U-17 World Cup, Can captained the German squad that won third place, they won six out of seven games and were beaten only by tournament winner and host Mexico by 2–3. In that semifinal match, Can scored his only goal of the tournament: he started a solo dribble in the centre of the pitch, ran past three Mexican players and netted the 2–1 for Germany. He was given the nickname "Skipper" by national youth coach Steffen Freund.
Because of his Turkish ancestry Can is also eligible to play for the
Turkey national football team, but he stated he "likes playing for Germany very much, and wants to make it in the DFB".
