Liverpool defender Konate: Our end of season can be completely crazy or completely sad

Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate admitted mixed emotions after their 3-3 draw with Benfica last night.

Konate scored on the night as Liverpool advanced to the Champions League semifinals 6-4 on aggregate.

He later said: "We think about it, we take match after match, we did a 3-3, we are disappointed with the result, but the important thing was to qualify, now we have to focus on this weekend, because we have another important match for us, against Manchester City (in the FA Cup semifinal).

"It's not easy for me as a young player to chain such matches, mentally, it's trying, after that we live for it.

"The end of the season can be completely crazy or completely sad, it's up to us to be focused, match after match to finish as best as possible."
