Peter Krawietz claims Liverpool’s new signing Ibrahima Konate has the “potential to develop into a world-class centre-half”.

The club’s current first-team coach has shared his full praise for the Reds’ newcomer (via Anfield Watch), saying:

“We see the absolute potential to develop into a world-class centre-half. He is a young player still, but also experienced. He is a smart centre-half and in terms of defending, he has the physical body to be a proper centre-half.”

Then he added: “He is very, very comfortable and calm on the ball, which is so important for us and our style of football, which is to realise a really calm and safe build-up for our attacking situations. We see all these qualities in him.”
