Cameroonian player, Joel Matip, was in the middle of controversy as he declined the call to play for Cameroon during the African Cup of Nations and decided to play for his club Liverpool, instead. Via an interview with Time, he has now spoken out on why he chose to stay with Liverpool instead. This is what he said:

“It was not always easy for me, but I hope this chapter is now finished.
I did not understand what was going on around me. I only wanted to stay here at Liverpool and play. In the last two years after the World Cup [in 2014], I was only on international duty one time.

I tried to play and represent my country, do my best and achieve something but all the surrounding things were not the best. I always tried it and tried it. I spoke to the old coach a lot and he always tried to change some things. I said, ‘OK, I will try it again’.

I tried it again and again and, at one moment, you have to say it is enough. You cannot keep saying, ‘Maybe next time it will get better, it will get better’.

It is Africa and you can never compare it to European things. I never compared it. I am not talking about the hotel or having the perfect pitch. It is not that I want something special. But it would have been good if all the people only thought the most important thing was to win something and to achieve."
