Ibrahima Konaté on the Champions League final: “I think about it every day.”

In an interview with Téléfoot, Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konaté notably spoke about the prospect of playing in the Champions League final this month against Real Madrid.

The 22-year-old Frenchman, who is impressing in his first season in England, has been a key part of the Premier League side reaching the final – which will be played in his native Paris.

“I thought it was going to feel incredible and that I was going to be emotional, but no, nothing at all [laughs]! Then we watched the other semi-final and saw that it would be Real Madrid, and I thought OK, we’re there now. I’m definitely thinking about it every day.” 

“[On the prospect of defending against Karim Benzema] It’s incredible. Especially with the season he’s having, it’s exceptional. But he’s not the only one in their team. My objective is that none of their players score.”
