Liverpool FC defender Joel Matip has revealed his desire to play in the UEFA Champions League with the English giants next season.

On Sunday, the former Cameroon international helped Liverpool cement their spot in the English Premier League top four with a 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

“Before the season I did not expect something like this, I just wanted to concentrate on the games and I did not have a target,” he said on the Liverpool Off Side.

“But now we are in this position, we want to try and keep it and get more and more. A club like Liverpool belongs in the Champions League, so we will fight to stay or get there.

"With all its trophies and history, it is one of the biggest clubs, everybody knows this. Big history, big club," he continued.

“Everybody knows something about Liverpool, it speaks for itself, this is Liverpool. It is such a great club with this history.

“I want to play in the Champions League because then you play against the biggest teams and the biggest players and everybody will enjoy this.”
