Joel Matip Withdrawn From Liverpool Squad

Joel Matip was not inclusive of the Liverpool squad ahead of the clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Matip was not also included in the Cameroon squad for AFCON 2017 in Gabon however, the Cameroon Football Federation and FIFA have not come out to officially confirm his availability for the Reds.

In a statement issued by Liverpool, [perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]“We will continue to work for a speedy and an unambiguous resolution.”[/perfectpullquote]

Liverpool believes it would be a risk to play Matip without getting a green light from FIFA.
