Ibrahima Konate’s quick adaption to the demands of Premier League football has impressed Fabinho.
Centre-back Konate joined Liverpool from RB Leipzig last summer and has made 13 appearances so far this season.
And Fabinho believes the 22-year-old deserves credit for the speed and comfort with which he has settled into life with the Reds.
“He’s playing really good. When he has the chance to play, he always shows why Liverpool wanted him because he always plays really good,” the Brazil international told Liverpoolfc.com.
“The Premier League is not an easy league to play as a centre-half. He’s young but he's showing the experience he has.
“He’s strong, he’s fast, so he has the style of the league. He always plays with Joel Matip or Virgil, so it’s important for him as well to have an experienced player by his side.”
