Konate lost for words at Anfield debut

Ibrahima Konate was delighted to have made his Anfield debut in a Liverpool shirt.

The 22-year-old defender played his part in Monday night’s 3-1 friendly win over Osasuna in front of 40,000 fans.

“To be honest, I don’t have the words to explain my feelings when I put my first foot on the pitch,” he told the official site. “It’s amazing and I’m very happy to have my first game at Anfield with fans.

“Today was amazing. I cannot imagine the stadium in the Premier League or Champions League.”
