'Well that's beautiful': Liverpool fans react to Ibrahima Konate comments on Gini Wijnaldum

Liverpool fans have been having their say on social media after hearing from Ibrahima Konate for the first time since he arrived this summer.

The big central defender has been brought in by Jugen Klopp to provide extra cover and quality in defence. After last season’s injury hit campaign, Liverpool made it a priority to get a new defender, with Konate eventually the man to come in.

Konate was speaking to the official Liverpool site yesterday, and in a short clip posted on Twitter, had some kind words to say about taking the number five vacated by Gini Wijnaldum.

The Dutch midfielder has left for pastures now. But Konate, 22, has come in and will now take the number five from Wijnaldum.

Konate dubbed Wijnaldum a ‘great’ player and called taking the number ‘important’ for him. Crucially, he came across humble and positive and it was something Reds fans picked up on.

In fairness, ‘Gini’ will probably go down as a legend. He won the Champions League, before being instrumental in winning the Premier League.

Here, then, is what some Liverpool fans had to say about Konate and his comments on Wijnaldum.
