Some Liverpool supporters have been showing their love for Reds cult hero Joel Matip, following a brilliant video which emerged of him in training.
The Cameroonian is a hugely popular member of Jurgen Klopp’s squad, possessing a likeable character that rubs off on both the fans and his teammates.
Most importantly, however, Matip is an excellent centre-back when he is available, although constant injury problems have held him back.
The 29-year-old missed a huge chunk of last season because of fitness issues, but he is now available again and looking sharp in pre-season.
On Monday night, a brilliant video of Matip was posted on Liverpool’s official Twitter account, showing the defender producing strong physicality and also technical brilliance, marauding around the pitch in the process.
