(Video) Konate holds off Man Utd’s Fred with only one arm in new clip showing off Frenchman’s strength during brawl

Ibrahima Konate posted a solid performance in Liverpool’s 5-0 thrashing of Manchester United at the weekend, playing a pivotal role in helping keep Cristiano Ronaldo quiet all afternoon.

In a brawl sparked by the Portuguese international’s unsavoury kick at Curtis Jones, the former RB Leipzig defender was quick to join the fray and retaliate against Bruno Fernandes’ shove on Virgil van Dijk.

Chaos quickly descended as Fred too decided to intervene in the dispute, attempting in vain to drag the Frenchman away, whilst the bemused centre-half fended off the midfielder with one arm.
