Video: Joel Matip scores wonderful solo goal in training, prompting Klopp to say: “You can see the joy in his face”

Joel Matip is some player.

Not many players his height are blessed with tight control, dribbling ability or his surprising agility.

Today, he scored a typically ‘Matip’ goal by dodging tackles and nipping between his teammates to slot a wonderful goal in training.

Klopp laughed in the way that only the German does, exclaiming: “You can see the joy in his face!”

Hopefully, Matip can score another goal like this one much like how he did against Leeds United last season.
