Video: Jurgen Klopp speaks on Ibrahima Konate following Manchester United performance

It’s fair to say that not many people believed that Ibrahima Konate could come into the Liverpool side at , pocket Cristiano Ronaldo, and leave a 5-0 winner. Yet, one week later, and the praise has been endless for the Frenchman.

The former RB Leipzig defender completed his role to perfection - leading to several positives, including a mention from Jurgen Klopp in his latest press conference: “Physique-wise, he’s a machine. Has the speed we need, likes challenges, just a really good football knowledge, like anticipating situations early and all these kind of things. So it’s a package – a really good package.

"He is an incredible talent, obviously. He came really young to Germany, and that’s a tough league to play for a young centre-half. Did there incredibly well, so came over to England and actually when you see him, he’s built for the Premier League."
