France manager Didier Deschamps has confirmed that Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate has suffered a hamstring injury. He added, though, that the issue is not serious and that the defender has merely had tests taken to assess the injury.
He further revealed that the 24-year-old center-back bore the injury in a place where he sustained a similar issue before. Deschamps said that Konate will be needing some time to not take any risks. Consequently, he will miss France’s upcoming 2024 UEFA Euro Qualifiers against Gibraltar and Greece.
As a result, Konate will miss France’s upcoming 2024 UEFA Euro Qualifiers against Gibraltar and Greece.
The center-back has registered eight Premier League, two UEFA Europa League, and one EFL Cup appearance so far for the Reds this season. He continues to be a crucial pillar at the back for Liverpool.
Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has opened up about his new hybrid role at the club. He plays as a right-back and moves up into the middle of the park when the Reds are on the attack. Alexander-Arnold admitted that the new position is more demanding, but he is happy with the level of freedom he now has.
Alexander-Arnold has recorded three assists in 14 games across competitions for Liverpool this season.
