I want to stay a long time...French international defender Ibrahima Konate vows to stay at Liverpool Team

French defender Ibrahima Konate moved from RB Leipzig to Liverpool in 2021.As a partner of Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk, he has been able to contain opponents with his exceptional athleticism.

The vice-captain has helped break new ground by covering the right back position played by England defender Trent Alexander-Arnold, who is considered to be a hole in the team, allowing him to concentrate on attack.

The 24-year-old center back, who made his debut for France in 2022 and has played 13 games so far, is happy at Anfield and has stated his intention to stay at Liverpool in the future.

“It’s clear that I want to stay a long time, it’s clear that I want to accomplish things. The most important thing to stay here is to set the bar high,”

“To have thrown me into the deep end. Liverpool, the PL, the Champions League, it’s something else. Everything he gave me allowed me to join the French team.”


Van Dijk will soon turn 33, and Liverpool will have to tackle a generational change in their center backs.

The French defender, who is considered a front-runner to become the next defensive leader, is expected to play a central role under the new coach who will take over from Jurgen Klopp.

Now one of the best center backs in the world, will he be able to extend his current contract, which expires in June 2026, and remain at Anfield for a long time to come?
