Liverpool defender Konate rules himself out of season opener (LFC)

Writing on social media, Konate confirmed that he will not play against Fulham.

Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate has confirmed he will miss the start of the 2022/23 season.

The centre-back was forced from the field in the second half of Sunday’s pre-season loss to Strasbourg.

Writing on social media, Konate confirmed: “Unfortunately, I have to spend some time off the pitch but it won’t be too long.

“In the meantime, I will be doing my best to come back even stronger and supporting the boys.”

Manager Jurgen Klopp is well covered at centre-back with Joe Gomez, who signed a new contract this summer, providing another option. Liverpool can also still call upon Nat Phillips, who could leave the club before the end of the transfer window if their £10 million valuation is met.

Liverpool will start their campaign against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
