Jamie Carragher waxes lyrical about Red who signed for the club back in 2016

Former Red Jamie Carragher has recently praised Liverpool centre-back Joel Matip.

Carragher has been impressed with how the 30-year-old has performed for the Reds since signing for the club back in the summer of 2016.

The Scouser believes that Matip has been "top-class" for Liverpool over the years.

Carragher told Sky Sports the following (01:00): "Every time he plays, he's top-class."

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

We completely agree with Carragher. Matip has been a very good player Liverpool over the years.

The centre-back has made 132 appearances for the Reds. Matip has helped Liverpool win four major trophies.

The club actually signed Matip from Schalke on a free transfer. Therefore, the 30-year-old has certainly proven to be a bargain of a signing for Liverpool.

Matip has been solid for the Reds in the early parts of the 2021-22 Premier League campaign. The defender is averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.22.

Hopefully Matip can stay fit for the entire season. The centre-back has picked up a number of injuries over the years, so we do have concerns over his durability.
