Matip Joins Klopp’s Red Men
Liverpool defender Joel Matip is looking forward to working under Jurgen Klopp after being unveiled by the club at Anfield.

Chelsea Strengthen Attack With Talented Belgian
Chelsea have completed the £33million signing of Michy Batshuayi from Marseille on a five-year contract.
The Belgium striker was at their Cobham training ground on Sunday to put pen to paper after the two clubs agreed on the fee earlier in the week while Batshuayi was at the European Championship.
Batshuayi began his career at Standard Liege and joined Marseille in the summer of 2014, scoring 15 goals in his first season with the club.
Last season he scored 26 goals, including 17 in Ligue 1, despite Marseille struggling and finishing 13th ‒ just nine points clear of the relegation zone.
His performances earned him a place in Belgium's Euro 2016 squad and he scored within two minutes of his introduction as a substitute against Hungary in the last 16.
Sevilla Reunion At PSG
Polish midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak has signed a five-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain, the French champions said in a statement on Sunday.
He joins PSG from Spanish side Sevilla, where he played under the guidance of Unai Emery who has now been appointed PSG manager.
Krychowiak becomes PSG's second major signing under Emery after attacking midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa, who has joined from Ligue 1 side Nice on a two-year contract.
The ambitious and wealthy Paris club achieved their second successive domestic treble by winning Ligue 1, the French Cup and the League Cup, but they lost in the Champions League quarter-finals for the fourth successive season.
Arteta Joins Pep City Revolution
Mikel Arteta has confirmed he has retired from football and will join Pep Guardiola's coaching staff at Manchester City.
The former Arsenal captain released a lengthy statement on his Twitter page reflecting on his time as a player, as well as underlining his excitement at the prospect of working alongside Guardiola, who will be formally unveiled as the new City boss on Sunday.
Arteta moved to Britain in 2002 to join Rangers, who he played for for two years before returning to Spain with Real Sociedad for a season.
After a loan spell at Everton, he joined the Goodison Park outfit on permanent terms in 2005 and played for the blue half of Merseyside for six years, before Arsene Wenger swooped for the midfielder in 2011.
