Sport: The players’ contracts expire on 30 June this year. They will not be extended, Liverpool confirms.

– I am very grateful for the wonderful years I have spent here, with so many unique people around me, Matip tells the club’s websites.

Outgoing Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp is full of praise for the centre-back.

– In all the years I’ve been involved in football, I’m not sure if I’ve met so many players I’ve loved more than Joël Matip, Klopp says to the club’s website.

32-year-old Matip, who was born in Germany, was brought to the club on a free transfer in 2016. Three years later, he was a strong contributor when the red shirts won the Champions League.

The following year the club won the Premier League. Then the defender lost large parts of the season with two different injuries. Most of this year’s season has also been spoiled by a serious knee injury.

Spanish Alcantara, like Matip, is finished in Liverpool in a short time. The 33-year-old has only played five minutes of first-team football this season.
