Joel Matip has refused to rule out a return to Schalke in the future, his boyhood club.
However, he has two years left on his current contract on Anfield with the Reds and wants to see it through should nothing drastic change.
”In football nothing is impossible. At the moment I still have two years remaining in my contract here at Liverpool. “After some problems and injuries at the beginning meanwhile I feel very comfortable here. And I’ve been more mature as a player and as a person here in England.”
“There is still a lot of room for Schalke in my heart,” added Matip. “That never stops.
“Accordingly, my worries about this club were very big. I try to watch every single game on TV. It can only get better for the new season.”
On the Reds’ sixth European triumph last month, Matip said: “It is still hard to realise. It’s simply madness what our win has triggered.
“The whole city was dressed in red when we came back from Madrid. The pure joy, like an ecstasy. These pictures will always remain in my mind. An unbelievable experience.”
