Liverpool defender, Joel Matip has come out to say that he is pleased to be in the club’s pre-season camp. He recently revealed that he really feels good ahead of next season.
According to him, playing with the ball and being active again is completely refreshing for him, and he hopes things continue like that.
Matip added that his past injuries have been really tough on him so he is really focusing on enjoying being injury-free again.
His words, “I’m feeling good. It’s nice to be back in training with the lads and to just be playing, playing [with] the ball and being active.”
“I feel really good at the moment. I have a lot of sessions ahead of me but I am feeling good and I hope to continue like this.”
“Training camps are always intense but for these moments we are here and these belong to pre-season and we try to enjoy it.”
On past injuries, “It was not a really good period for me, a lot of injuries, but I only can look forward and try to do my best and try to get in the best shape I can.”
“They did great! They were thrown in and their performance was really great, especially under this kind of pressure. They did really, really well.”
“If you always train on your own it is quite hard for the head but if you are back with the team and can play, and also make jokes, that always helps.”
“You are really looking forward to the moment when you are in between them [again]. It’s funny to be around them and you laugh a lot more than when you are on your own!”
