Liverpool defender, Ibrahima Konate has come out to reveal the qualities he’ll offer his new club. He recently revealed that he considers his size and strength an incredible addition to Liverpool’s defense.
According to him, as a defender, he even scores more with his foot than with his head, so that would surely help LFC’s attack.
Konate added that he is never scared with the ball at his feet despite being a CB, and he knows there’ll be no room for slip-ups in the EPL.
His words, “I am big, I am strong and I am not scared with the ball!”
“I can score more with my foot than my head, it is a little bit strange! This is me!”
“Yes, I have this quality, but I have to work again and again and more and more and more for being a very good defender.”
“Yes, I have watched some Premier League games and everybody knows there is so much intensity, strong players.”
“This is difficult but I love the challenge.”
On his nickname, “Yes, ‘Ibou’ because when I was young, every time my mother would call me ‘Ibou, Ibou’.”
“When I was on the first day in Leipzig, she was with me and she would say every time, ‘Hey, Ibou… Ibou… Ibou…’ and Ralf Rangnick asked, ‘Why ‘Ibou’?’ So, I said it was my nickname because every time my mum would call me that every time and my family too. He said, ‘OK, now it’s Ibou’ and afterwards everyone would call me it.”
