Ibrahima Konate has released a new video on social media hyping his move to Liverpool.
While he is yet to travel to Merseyside and do the run-of-the-mill new signing media duties, Konate has released a promo video himself on social media.
In it, he reveals that he will wear the No 5 shirt vacated by Gini Wijnaldum.
He also put on the famous red shirt for the first time, while he modelled the brand new away shirt too.

The video is shot on a street football pitch in his home town, where Konate is surrounded by locals excited about his move to one of the biggest clubs on earth.
From the Louis Vuitton bag that stored the shirt to the background track (“Hot” by Young Thug for those interested) to the flares, everything about the video is just fantastic.
The only person on earth happier than the French locals in the background was Konate himself. He looked incredibly proud to be holding that famous red shirt with his name on the back.
The crowd erupted into a chant of “Ibou” as they danced and let off red flares behind their local hero.
We have no doubt that Konate felt like an absolute king.
In all honesty, if the football thing doesn’t work out for him, he has a career in video production for himself. Liverpool should seriously consider consulting him for new signing announcements in future.
One thing for sure is that everyone here at RTK cannot wait to see this passion out on the pitch.
Fans love the Konate video
As expected, the replies to Konate’s Tweet were filled with excited Liverpool fans.
If they enjoyed the sneak peek that was released beforehand, they really enjoyed the real thing.

I haven’t ever seen before a player celebrated his transfer to the new club as much Konate to LFC, this is the second celebration, the first one was private then this one with his friends, this is how huge he loves the club.— Nawaf 🔴 (@LFC_Nawaf) July 8, 2021
From our deep heart: welcome Konate ❤️
His people need to speak to our people. We need to step up these media announcements/videos— 𝐸𝓁𝓈 🏴 (@lfcels_) July 8, 2021
