Beyond being appreciated for his defensive prowess, Joel Matip has endeared himself to Liverpool fans as a cult hero, being a constant source of joy for supporters.
Whilst shooting a promo, the Cameroonian centre-half couldn’t stop himself from laughing at Virgil van Dijk’s walk up the bowling alley.
The 29-year-old has been ever-present in the Reds’ pre-season, impressing alongside summer signing Ibrahima Konate ahead of the start of the season proper.
With Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez yet to feature in a fixture since being ruled out with long-term injuries last term – though the former could be in line for some minutes against Hertha Berlin – it’s possible that Matip could be set to start for the club’s opening league tie.
