Lacking defenders in his squad this season, Jürgen Klopp has been heard. With the arrival of promising and talented French defender Ibrahima Konaté, the German technician will be able to count on a solid player who will already be able, at 22, to fight for a starting place in the central hinge of the Reds. In any case, this is what Klopp himself said, after the officialization of Konaté’s transfer today.
“I’m really happy that we were able to add a player of Ibrahima’s quality to our squad. He is someone I have admired for a long time, since I realized his potential when he was at Sochaux. His physical qualities are very impressive: he is fast, very strong and dominant in the air. I have no doubts that we are signing a player who can play for us right now, but he is a 22 year old boy who has room for improvement due to his enormous potential. I know that’s something he can’t wait to work with us to become an even better player. For me it’s really exciting because I’ve seen how good he is already and I can’t wait to work with him when he joins us in the pre-season. “ Definitely, the former manager of Dortmund is already conquered!
