I’ll have to try to catch a Schalke game now to check him out. Klopp must know all about him so I have faith that he will be a good signing. That’s 2 players coming in over the summer and we’ve only spent £5 million so plenty left for a big signing.

Many thanks for pointing this out Realspanishred. I’ll be watching to see how Matip fares.

Hopefully Klopp gives us a leg up on the early pilfering of German players that will start to come with the new TV money

It seems strange he’s apparently taken a pay cut to come here. If that’s true it can only be down to what he thinks Klopp can achieve here.

He’s receiving a €5m sign-on and a €7m per year salary, or about £105m per week. So not sure if he’s taking a cut or not.
But Schalkes Sporting Executive said Matip wants to play in the PL. if Schalkes good moved he would have stayed with them.(paraphrased)

Is he good..I mean suitable for Liverpool? We need a fast left back to replace Moreno with good crossing and passing. I have no problem with Clyne on the left.

Not sure we need a left back ezanih Flanno and Gomez have covered it really well plus I prefer Brad Smith in place of Moreno. You ask is Matip any good. He is in the bundesliga team of the season at the moment. Klopp likes him which is good enough for me.
