crazy ball Liverpool tactician Jurgen Klopp really hopes that Ibrahima Konate’s injury is not too serious.
After struggling in the Community Shield in a 3-1 win over Manchester City, Merseyside Football Club returned to a test run against Strasbourg on Monday (1/8) early morning WIB.
The clash at Anfield saw Jurgen Klopp rotate a number of key players without playing. Ibrahima Konate was one of those played by the coach from the early minutes. However, he had to be withdrawn in the 57th minute due to a knee injury and was replaced by Sepp Van den Berg.
Due to the injury sustained in the knee, it must undergo further medical examination to determine the severity of Konate’s injury. Meanwhile, the final result of the match against the French club, the English giants, at Anfield had to surrender with 0-3.
Even though the Reds lost, Jurgen Klopp hopes that Ibrahima Konate will not suffer a serious injury and will not be out for long before the start of the 2022/23 Premier League.
Klopp tells Liverpool.com quoted from sports mole, that he did not know exactly about the defender’s injury. According to his assessment, the player will not be seriously injured.
That’s why Jurgen Klopp really hopes that Ibrahima Konate can return to strengthen the Premier League giants in time.
Although it is quite normal for a German football coach to feel quite anxious about Konate’s injury. This is because he felt that he had not been strengthened by a main defender for a long time, as Virgil van Dijk experienced.
If Ibrahima Konate is seriously injured and out for a long time, Liverpool only have five central defenders. This allowed Nathaniel Phillips and Joe Gomez to get playing time early in the season.
Liverpool will play the first game of the 2022/23 Premier League against Fulham on Saturday (6/8) evening WIB. In that game, Jurgen Klopp’s side will first travel to Craven Cottage.
