'Matip is so tired of him': Some Liverpool fans react to 24-second footage from AXA Training Centre
Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after watching a 24-second video of Joël Matip and Virgil van Dijk at the AXA Training Centre.
What’s the story?
Well, the Reds released footage of Jürgen Klopp’s men walking out onto the grass ahead of a training session.
In the clip, we can see Van Dijk eulogising over his centre-back partner, telling him how great he is before asking him to do a little trick.
Hilariously, Matip doesn’t respond at all, which has led to some Liverpool fans below jokingly claiming that the Dutchman annoys him.
Given their chemistry in defence, we’re certain that isn’t true.
Both Van Dijk and Matip were superb in the 3-0 win over Norwich, and it was great to see them reunited at the back.
Where does Ibrahima Konate fit?
It’s great to see Van Dijk and Matip have such chemistry – it leads to a fine on-field partnership, which bodes well for the Reds.
However, one man who may not agree with that is Ibrahima Konate.
The Frenchman arrived from RB Leipzig for £36m back in May, but was left on the bench for the 3-0 win over Norwich.
With Van Dijk, Matip and Joe Gomez at Anfield, Konate surely wasn’t promised regular first-team football by Klopp.
Nevertheless, he’ll potentially be wondering where his playing time will come from after seeing Van Dijk and Matip click so effectively.
Let’s see what the Liverpool fans on Twitter have been saying about the 24-second video…
