Konate presented Liverpool shirt in five venues in Paris alone – Klopp

The Reds manager has expressed his desire to work with the French centre-half of Malian descent who joined from RB Leipzig

Jurgen Klopp has underlined how Ibrahima Konate was so pleased to join Liverpool, that he had his shirt presentation in five different venues in Paris.

The six-time European kings activated the release clause in the 22-year-old’s contract at Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, signing the defender on a five-year deal and a fee worth £36 million ($50m).

With the arrival of Konate at Anfield, he becomes a contender to partner Virgil van Dijk at the heart of the Premier League side’s back four.

Also, the German tactician expressed his delight to have the France prospect (of Mali descent) in his star-studded squad ahead of the new season.


Excited to work with him, Klopp stated he has a bright future based on his exploits at the Red Bull Arena.

“First of all, obviously he is very excited! I saw on social media he had his own shirt presentation in five different venues in Paris! Great,” Klopp was quoted by Liverpool website
