The brother of Schalke defender Joel Matip has been discussing his Bosman move to Liverpool.
The 24-year-old will join Liverpool at the end of the season and it has now been revealed his Cameroon team-mates convinced him it was the right move to make.
Marvin Matip told BILD: “I also advised him to take this step and he then talked to guys from the national team, who play in England, about it.
“They also think Joel is ready for England. Also, Liverpool have a German coach in Jürgen Klopp, it also makes it easier.”
