RB Leipzig keeper Mvogo tells Liverpool fans: You'll see how fantastic Konate is

RB Leipzig goalkeeper Yvon Mvogo is backing Ibrahima Konate for success with Liverpool.

Liverpool signed the France U21 defender last month.

And Mvogo, who spent last season on-loan with PSV, told the Mirror: "Ibra Konaté is just a fantastic defender. He had some injuries this year so he could not show his full potential. He is one of the best young defenders I have seen in my career and I wish him all the best in Liverpool.

"I am sure that he will succeed there and show everyone what a fantastic player he is. I know he has all the attributes needed to do well in the Premier League. He has all the strengths a defender needs."
