Konate’s season at Liverpool
Ibrahima Konate would be signed by Liverpool from RB Leipzig during the summer transfer window to add some quality depth to the Reds’ bottom line.
Konate made his competitive debut for Liverpool vs Crystal Palace, following his move from RB Leipzig over the summer.
Konate started the tie and completed the full 90 minutes, of course keeping a clean sheet in the process.
The defender received praise from Jurgen Klopp after the match, with the German labelled Konate’s debut as ‘top’.
Konate would then start in a full 90 minutes when Liverpool beat Norwich by three goals to nil in the third round of the League Cup last month.
Henderson talks about Konate
However, since then the Frenchman had failed to earn a start for Liverpool, and Joel Matip became Virgil van Dijk’s clear partner.
But, on Sunday, Konate got off to a somewhat surprising start for Liverpool vs Manchester United.
The Merseysiders won the tie 5-0 and Konate put on a stellar performance.
Now speaking after the game, Jordan Henderson has delivered his verdict on Konate, labeling his display against Liverpool as top notch:
“We have some very, very good center-backs, so it’s difficult, but I thought it was first class.
“You have to be to have a clean sheet at Old Trafford so I’m delighted for him and delighted for the team in terms of a clean sheet, I thought, it was important to us and we have to keep it up.”
“To concede two midweek we were disappointed after going up 2-0, so we knew today that we wanted to try and keep a clean sheet, which I thought was very good for us.
“And obviously we scored some incredible goals, which is what everyone wants to see as well.”
