Liverpool defender Matip can't put time-frame on return

Liverpool defender Joel Matip can't put a time-frame on his return.

Centre back Matip suffered a knee injury during the Reds' Premier League victory over Sheffield United in October.

Since the draw at Manchester United, Matip has been laid off by the injury and is still yet to return to training.

"I don't want to put a time on it," Matip told Sky Sports. "I'm just taking my time and we'll see.

"Of course it's hard to get injured but unfortunately that's the life of a player. I am working hard at the moment to get back.

"I'm always trying to do my best, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Hopefully I'm back as soon as possible."
