Jurgen Klopp issues praise for summer transfer arrival

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has issued praise for defender Ibrahima Konate with the centre-back having a decent first season with the club.

We've not seen much of Konate this campaign but that is a trend we've seen with a lot of new arrivals at Liverpool.

Klopp likes to give them a chance to really get up to speed with how they like to work but when he has played Konate has certainly looked a top prospect.

Indeed, the defender could be set for a really bright future and it seems as though Klopp is really happy with the player so far:


Anfield Watch Verdict

It's still very early in Konate's career at Liverpool but it is probably fair to say he is ranked only behind Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip at the club in terms of the pecking order.

The young defender looks as though he really could be the real deal and at the moment he is learning off some of the best players in the world at Liverpool.

That all bodes well, and it sounds as though his manager is impressed with him too so it's seemingly all positive right now.
