Ibrahima Konate, New Centre-Back of Liverpool

Liverpool moved to quickly to sign Ibrahima Konate to strengthen their defender squad. As we know that many Liverpool’s defenderd were injured, and they just came back to the training center after struggling with their injuries. Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are defenders who were injured so badly last season.

I think Jurgen Klopp doesn’t want to do gambling with them, that’s is why he signed a new fresh centre-back from RB Leipzig.


I think Konate is a good signing for The Reds. But, I am curious why Liverpool didn’t sign permanently Ozan Kabak. Kabak is a good centre-back and he has proved himself by playing great with Nats Phillips.

So why Liverpool prefer to sign Konate than Kabak? I think this is the answer:

Guido Schafer, former team-mate of Jurgen Klopp's at Mainz, said that: "he is tall, fast, good technique and he is a little bit of Virgil van Dijk...He has very high-class potential. He is a great athlete, he has good speed and there are no silly tackles - he is an intelligent player. Konaté is also well known for his passing and strength in the air”.Source

I hope Konate will be adapting with the teams as soon as possible. It’s a perfect time for Konate to show his skill and moral when joining the team as they are training in Austria. Konate is an international player of France, and you know he would be a really great wondeful player under Jurgen klopp.


Decent signing from the Reds. I believe the 22 year old french international is a great addition to the team has he offers more depth to the defense line. He also seems like the perfect replacement for van Dijk.

I believe manager klopp learnt a lot from the previous season that almost cost them to drop out of the top 4 race due to defense worries after Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez suffered an injury.

The now former lepzig player should adapt to the premier style of play easily due to his similarity in play as compared to the Dutch defender. He possess the positional play, tacking and strength.

I really agreed with the signing this will give the defenders enough time to recover from the injury..atlease by the time their come back their resume in full health and that will be a better thing for Liverpool.

Konate is a very food signing for liverpool.if u can remember vividly last season when their key centre backs got injured and liverpool was left in total dilemma which made them loose the title. Kabak is very good defender but he lacks confidence.

Konate is very good defender for Liverpool team even the comparison of him and van dink will be perfect and if one of the get injury their defense won't be more open for their opponent to operate
His one of the best signing for their team

I guess this move for a young and sharp defender is a great. For Liverpool to be able to claim a spot in top three this season, they need to double up. Good work to klopp

they have really done well by buying a strong defender like this but i think they still need a stronger striker that can complement the effort of Salah and Mane. Firmino has not really been performing. i think Liverpool need to consider RB Salzburg striker.

Definitely they need to strengthen their front line too in order to ease the pressure off the neck of people like mane and Salah who have been carrying that on their shoulder.

Firmino to me as not been very proflic in front of goal that much,a dirty striker too Is needed to do those job too and with that they will give other.team a fight for their money come next football season

Well comparing the two players in terms of teams we all know that lepzig is more recognised than that may so probably observing the difference in team pedigree across europe I believe that's the criteria at which klop picked konate and remember that epl is much competitive.

A perfect signing for the reds and for the french international konate on joining the Anfield landlord.

Klopp needs to strengthen his defence line for next football season,just to make sure that all players are fit and thier should be valuable kegs to step in Incase of an injury crises that affected thier campaign last time out

His signing us going to help in improving the black line of the liverpool team and will also avoid the no option stuff Incase of injury crises which hit them hard last season,but of all it is good to see that all the players are back and adding konate us a massive signini for the Reds
