Top-class centre-halves all over the place!' - Milner embraces 'strange' situation at Liverpool

The Reds found themselves short on defensive options at times last season, but Jurgen Klopp is now well stocked at the back

James Milner has been impressed by Ibrahima Konate's early showings in Liverpool training, with a Reds veteran embracing a "strange" situation that now sees "top-class centre-halves all over the place" at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp found himself short in that department during an injury-hit 2020-21 campaign, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all picking up problems that kept them stuck on the sidelines for long periods.

They are now back in the fold, along with £36 million ($50m) summer signing Konate, and Milner is among those feeling encouraged by what he has seen from a squad that is determined to get back in the trophy hunt.
