Former Liverpool FC defender Daniel Agger says Joel Matip should focus on helping his side keep more clean sheet next season.

The Cameroonian defender joined the English giants from German side Schalke prior to the 2016/17 season and he helped the team qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League.

“I think he did well. The first season is always tough, not only for defenders but any Premier League player,” Agger told

“Playing your first season in the Premier League, you always have to adapt; some do it quicker than others.

“I think he has done pretty well. He’ll learn from this season, I’m sure about that. He can use that next season,” he continued.

“To play for Liverpool you need to be consistent and that’s something you can see after a few seasons.

“His first season has definitely been good and I think he can be happy with that.”

“Of course, every player wants to score goals. It doesn’t matter if you’re a defender or a striker, you always like to score goals,” the Danish legend added.

“But obviously his main thing is to defend and keep clean sheets – that’s the most important thing.

“If he can chip in with a few goals, that’s just a bonus.”
