Liverpool Fans Are Very Excited About Ibrahima Konate After Training Footage Emerges

Ibrahima Konate is looking like the real deal as a clip showcasing his superb defensive skills is doing the rounds on social media.

The Frenchman arrived at Liverpool on a £36million deal from RB Leipzig last summer, and Reds fans are very excited by what is to come from the talented youngster.

Konate shows how alert he is to the ball by making two brilliant goal-saving blocks, with the latter denying Diogo Jota something to behold.

The timing of his runs and positioning is impeccable, and there is audible appreciation from the defender's teammates and coaches.

It has led to fans suggesting that he can reach the levels of Virgil van Dijk in the near future, meaning the Reds could have another potential world-class centre-back on their hands.

Konate currently has eight appearances across all competitions to his name so far this season, and most recently played the full 90 minutes in a 3-1 win over Newcastle United on Thursday.

He also played the full duration of the Champions League matches at home to FC Porto and away at AC Milan, as Jurgen Klopp's men ended the group stages with a 100 per cent record after six matches.

The 22-year-old will be hoping for game time when the Reds face Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, especially with Van Dijk ruled out after testing positive for Covid-19.

Klopp's side head into the clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in second place with 40 points from 17 games - one point behind league leaders Manchester City.
