Liverpool midfielder, James Milner has come out to say that he has been very impressed with Ibrahima Konate in training. He recently revealed that it currently feels strange to see top-class centre-halves all over the place again.
According to him, Konate definitely looks like a proper central defender and he is strong plus good on the ball as well.
Milner added that Liverpool currently has a good standard of CBs at the club and he believes it’ll count next season.
His words, “Very good. He certainly looks like a central defender!”
“He’s obviously very strong, he’s good on the ball, a very good defender positionally. I’ve not seen much of him in training but a couple of things he has done have stood out.”
“It’s a strange situation: you obviously go from last season not having too many centre-halves and now we’ve got top-class centre-halves all over the place! It’s fantastic.”
“Nat [Phillips] is obviously here and Davo [Ben Davies], Rhysy [Williams] obviously and all the guys in there – it’s a great standard of centre-half that we’ve got with everyone pushing each other and that’s exactly what you need.”
