Joel Matip delighted to get Liverpool career underway

Liverpool defender Joel Matip is delighted to get his Reds career underway.

Matip hopes his injury problems are behind him after making his competitive debut for Liverpool in the 5-0 EFL Cup rout of Burton Albion.

“I feel very good after the time with my injury. It's getting better and better," Matip told Liverpoolfc.com.

“It was not the best time [while I was injured]. For a player it's always hard when you're injured and cannot go at 100 per cent. It's good to be back. I will need some time, but I will get better."
