Watch: Incoming Liverpool defender gives his best Coutinho impression with incredible piece of skill

By Coral Barry

Joel Matip has given Liverpool’s fans a taste of what he is capable of and it is not what you may expect from a 6ft 3” defender.

The Schalke centre-back is due to pack his bags for Anfield once the Bundesliga season is over and join up with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

The deal was announced way back in February and Liverpool fans should be watering at the mouth after Matip displayed some incredible skill in his latest appearance for Schalke.

Schalke beat Hannover 3-1 on Saturday and Matip laid the third goal on a plate for Alessandro Schöpf after his incredible run eluded four defenders.

With Mamadou Sakho likely to miss at least six months because of a drug ban, Liverpool fans will be hugely encouraged by Matip’s remarkable show of skill.
