New Liverpool signing Ibrahima Konate has been tipped for success by a former RB Leipzig team-mate.
Yvon Mvogo, who spent last season in the Netherlands with PSV on loan from the Bundesliga side, has no doubts about the ‘fantastic defender’.
Speaking to the Mirror, the goalkeeper has backed Konate to find success in the Premier League with Liverpool after a difficult injury-plagued year.
“Ibra Konate is just such a fantastic defender. He had some injuries this year so he couldn’t show his full potential,” Mvogo said.
“He’s one of the best young defenders I have seen in my career and I just wish him all the best at Liverpool. I’m sure he will succeed there and show everyone what a great player he is,” the 27-year-old continued.
“I know he has all the attributes needed to do well in the Premier League. He has all the strengths a defender needs.”
