Ibrahima Konate brilliantly hits back at Chelsea fan on Instagram

Ibrahima Konate brilliantly hits back at Chelsea fan on Instagram

Konate wasn't taking the fan's abuse.

Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate hit back at a Chelsea fan on Instagram with a brilliant response.

Konate played 105 minutes of Liverpool's Carabao Cup final clash with Chelsea on Sunday, putting in a solid defensive performance as his side won 1-0.

The Frenchman's centre-back partner Virgil van Dijk scored the decisive goal in the 118th minute, securing a title that now means Liverpool are the most successful English club side in history.

Liverpool's players and staff took part in jubilant celebrations in-front of their supporters after the game, scenes that stood in stark contrast to the other end of Wembley Stadium.

Chelsea's players were understandably distraught to miss out on what could be their best chance to win silverware this season, and the same can be said about their supporters.

Konate encountered a bitter Chelsea fan on Instagram, and he delivered the perfect response.

Chelsea defender Axel Disasi - who played the full 120 minutes - posted on Instagram after the match with the caption: "Yesterday's defeat was a very tough one to take. It hurts badly, and will hurt for a while."

Konate offered support to his France teammate, commenting on the post: "Warrior. All the best for the rest of the season brother."

One Chelsea fan didn't appreciate the kind gesture though, and replied to Konate: "F*** off."

Footballer's receive plenty of abuse online, and often ignore it, but this time he chose to respond with humour.

"Allah see you! Keep going brother," Konate replied, followed by clapping and laughing face emojis.

Mauricio Pochettino's Chelsea have endured a disastrous season, and would have fancied their chances at Wembley given Liverpool's injury crisis.

Jurgen Klopp was unable to call upon Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, Dominik Szoboszlai and Diogo Jota among others, but a youthful XI - complemented by four youngsters from the bench - got the job done.
