PREMIER - Konate receives praises from captain Jordan Henderson
Jordan Henderson praised Ibrahima Konate's performance as a key factor in Liverpool's triumph over Manchester United.
As the Reds romped to an unprecedented 5-0 Premier League triumph against Manchester United on Sunday, Konate made only his third appearance since his £36 million summer signing from RB Leipzig.
With Konate in the team, Liverpool are yet to surrender a goal, and Reds captain Henderson said: "I thought he was outstanding."
"We've got a few very, very good centre-backs so it's difficult, but I thought he was top class.
“You've got to be to get a clean sheet at Old Trafford so I'm delighted for him and delighted for the team in terms of a clean sheet, I thought, was big for us and we need to keep that going.
“To concede two in midweek we were disappointed with after going 2-0 up, so we knew today we wanted to try to keep a clean sheet, which I thought was very good for us.
“And we obviously scored some amazing goals, which is what everybody wants to see as well."
