(Video) Konate reveals Liverpool squad number as friends set off red flares and fireworks

A clip has surfaced on Twitter, courtesy of @ScouserChrisLFC, of Ibrahima Konate apparently revealing his Liverpool shirt to his childhood friends.

The defender signed from RB Leipzig for £36m and is set to join Jurgen Klopp’s Reds for pre-season in the middle of July.

Sat ahead of his friends, the Paris-born centre-half was clipped pulling out a Liverpool shirt, befitted with his new squad number, from a bag.

Confirming a prior hint Konate’s brother had issued on social media, the 22-year-old is set to take over the vacant No.5 shirt once held by PSG-bound star Gini Wijnaldum.

It’s delightful to see how big of a deal the Frenchman has made of his switch to Anfield and we’re looking forward to seeing what he can do in the famous red shirt.
