Konate’s outstanding performance against Man Utd excites Liverpool skipper

Liverpool skipper, Jordan Henderson, has hailed the performance of Ibrahima Konate for victory at Manchester United.

Konate made only his third appearance since his £36million summer move from RB Leipzig as the Reds romped to an historic 5-0 Premier League win at Manchester United on Sunday.

Liverpool have yet to concede a goal with Konate in the side, and Reds captain Henderson said: “I thought he was outstanding.

“We’ve got a few very, very good centre-backs so it’s difficult, but I thought he was top class.

“You’ve got to be to get a clean sheet at Old Trafford so I’m delighted for him and delighted for the team in terms of a clean sheet, I thought, was big for us and we need to keep that going.

“To concede two in midweek we were disappointed with after going 2-0 up, so we knew today we wanted to try to keep a clean sheet, which I thought was very good for us.

“And we obviously scored some amazing goals, which is what everybody wants to see as well.”
