I don't know how to explain this feeling...Ibrahima Konate was surprised by Klopp's announcement Team

French defender Ibrahima Konate, who joined the club from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2021, forms a solid defensive line with Filsil Van Dijk, covering the spaces behind with his strength, speed, height and excellent athleticism.

The 24-year-old center back is expected to replace the Dutch international as a defensive leader, but Jurgen Klopp, the manager who acquired the player, will leave Anfield at the end of the season.

When the French defender touched on the subject, he was surprised and frank, but insisted that he will give his all in his remaining time.

“Of course it was very emotional, because nobody expected this from the manager. The world did not expect this!”

“Everybody was surprised, but this is football, and football is crazy. I don’t have the words, I don’t know how to explain this feeling, but for sure it was very important for us to show to the manager that we are with him for the rest of this season. We want to win everything for him, and for us, and for the fans.”

“Yes, exactly. When he said that [he was leaving], in my mind I was like, ‘In the last four months, I have to give my life for him now.’”

“It’s a big thing for the club and the fans, but like the manager said, for the next game against Chelsea we cannot think about this, and if the fans can help us to make sure that Chelsea know that they are away at Anfield, this will be great for us.”


They have reached the final of the Carabao Cup and have also reached the fifth round of the FA Cup.In the Europa League, they also made it through the group stage.

In the Premier League, they are also battling for the top spot, leaving the possibility of a fourth title following the season before last.

Will he be able to give the German coach a great final year in his last season at Anfield?
