Emre Can 'Angry and Upset' by Juventus Champions League Squad Exclusion

Emre Can has hit out at Juventus after being left out of the club's UEFA Champions League squad for the group stage, having turned down a move to Paris Saint-Germain to remain in Turin.

Can, Mario Mandzukic and Giorgio Chiellini—who just had surgery after suffering a cruciate ligament injury—were excluded from Maurizio Sarri's 22-man selection.

Can told Bild (h/t Football-Italia):

"I'm extremely shocked. Our conversation only lasted a minute and I wasn't given a reason. It makes me angry and upset.

"I'll draw my own conclusions and talk to the club after I return [from international duty].
