Summer signing Ibrahim Konate was surprised when Liverpool called for him

Ibrahim Konate is excited to pair up with Van Dijk in defence.

The French defender joined the Reds in a £36m move from RB Leipzig to bolster Liverpool’s defensive options.

He is yet to make his competitive appearance for Liverpool and is excited to work with Van Dijk who is regarded as one of the best centre-backs in the world.

Konate told HYPEBEAST: “When my brother told me, I didn’t believe him at first.

“But then I spoke with Klopp and I saw it was serious, that was amazing for me.

“It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world, so to be here is amazing. I’m very happy.

“I think the possibilities are endless to what we can achieve. It’s a club that reflects my ambitions as a player, it’s going to be an exciting campaign.”

Konate claims Van Dijk as one of the best defenders and is thrilled to play and learn from him.

“Virgil is incredible,” Konate said. “I can’t wait to play alongside him and learn from him.

“He’s truly one of the best in the world in that position.”
