Jamie Carragher: Ibrahima Konate biggest addition to Liverpool family

Liverpool great Jamie Carragher is excited by new signing Ibrahima Konate.

Former defender Carragher believes the big-money addition of Konate from RB Leipzig will prove to be another astute piece of business from manager Jurgen Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “I’ve seen snippets of him in the Champions League, obviously last season when Leipzig did really well.

“I watched him this season and I watched him a few days ago for France (U21s) and he just looks massive.

“He’s big and I like the size of him, he looks like he can cover the ground, he’s got big long strides when I was watching him play and he looks a huge presence and you just trust Liverpool with signings, you just do now.

“The way they go about it with Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards, the prices they pay, the ages they get certain players at, you just trust them.

“So, you know, if Liverpool feel someone is good enough to bring in, they’ve got the whole fanbase onside because of their track record.”
