Liverpool defender Matip recovery dragging on

Liverpool defender Joel Matip's recovery from knee injury continues to drag on.

Matip is set to be out for at least another two weeks as he recovers from the setback.

"Everything in our life is all under pressure. All the little things have to heal as quickly as possible, but here it is taking the normal amount of time," Jurgen Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com.

"It was not like after four weeks or so that it was already as we wished, so we have to wait another two weeks I would think and then we will see.

"But then he will have been out for six weeks or so, if it is perfect, fine, but he might need to rebuild his physical things as well, which is not too cool, but it is nothing serious.

"It will be fine, but the problem is between now and then, we play 10 times and that is the situation."
