Morning all.
So the question is should we keep matip
For me it’s a no!
Prem games 10
Champions League 2
To keep him who has only managed 12 games this season even when we needed him the most it just doesn’t add up for me. He’s a very injury (all most as bad as keita) prone player that’s taking up space and wages in the team.
Thoughts everone?

I don't think his situation is as bad as Keita. Keita is poor even when he plays.

Matip when fit is a Fantastic player and we were sat top at Christmas with him and Fab at centre half. The issue is keeping him fit as all his injuries seem to be something different every time. Personally I can’t see anyone buying him so unless we pay him off then he will stay.

Looking at his minutes played last season he actually played more minutes than Shaq, Gomez, Naby, Minamino, Origi, Ox and Tsimiskas. That’s not me trying to defend him but actually pointing out there’s far more players in the squad getting paid more and contributing less.

keita has played 16 games in total this season so it is similar mate.

Sanjit is pointing out Matip plays well when fit. That's the difference.

01 Jun 2021 08:37:05
Jk23 that is a very good point about the other players.

01 Jun 2021 08:41:48
If we could sell him for decent money, then yes. If we could get him of the payroll and Klopp gave Phillips his spot, then yes again but I don't think Klopp has either of these in mind, so I guess he stays.

01 Jun 2021 08:43:13
JK23, is correct. All those players bar Gomez i would ship out too. Not contributing enough.

01 Jun 2021 09:04:30
OP, Ed02 graciously replied to one of my posts regarding whether Matip could be moved on and he said that Klopp is not looking to move him on so there is your answer. Things could obv. change but there you go.

01 Jun 2021 09:08:59
No one will buy him so no.

How long does he have left on his contract? He will more than likely be with us until that expires tbh unless we release him early so he can go an prove his fitness elsewhere.

01 Jun 2021 09:30:23
I would keep Matip when he plays he is very good. As was mentioned we were top until he got injured.

01 Jun 2021 09:34:55
I think you can say Kieta “featured” in 16 games this season, I wouldn’t call it playing football though.

01 Jun 2021 09:52:00
Klopp played Keita in 16 games because he wanted him signed more then anything the lad is poison sick of saying it!
Matip great on his day but nvr fit way to unreliable and like JK said he plagued more then others mentioned doesn’t help the fact they’ve been absolute rubbish!
5/ 6 players there need gating I’d rather give youth a chance than those leeches!

Hopefully if matip is now 3rd/ 4th choice he won't have to play as much and therefore will suffer less injuries.

As many people have said he as an incredible ability to be dropped back into the team and be up to speed almost instantly. This alone is reason to keep him. As a back up you couldn't ask for anything more than when called upon he doesn't need a run of games to get up to speed.
