Liverpool defender Konate: Nkunku was best player in Bundesliga

Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate has hailed the quality of former RB Leipzig teammate Christopher Nkunku.

Konate played with Nkunku at RBL and also with France U21s.

Konate told a press conference on Tuesday: "No need to describe Nkunku, he is the best player in the Bundesliga this season. He wins a lot, he is good technically.

"I am close to him, to Guendouzi or to Diaby and Kamara at the Blues. In real life I am close to everyone."

Nkunku scored 25 goals in all competitions for the German side this season, with 20 assists to his name.
