Here Is Why Ibrahim Konate Is Preferable In The Liverpool Lineup Than Joel Matip

Ibrahim Konate is the new centre-back that Liverpool signed to replace their Dejan Lovren whom they sold two years ago. Liverpool saw the urgent need for a centre-back when Virgil van Dijk was out due to injury last season.

This caused some major problems for the club and it even made them suffer many losses due to the lack of a credible centre-back in their lineup. In my opinion, Konate is preferable in the Liverpool defence than Joel Matip because of the his stamina, body build and dominace at centre-back.

Joel Matip lacks all these qualities and that is why he still cannot go up against top strikers in the Premier league and even in the Champions League. His stamina is very poor and his body balance is our of sorts, thus Matip needs to be traded for Konate in the starting lineup, tape in important games so as to secure the centre-back position in the club.
