Liverpool’s pre-season training camp is well underway with the Reds working hard in Austria. The Reds will play their first pre-season friendlies this week. Some Liverpool fans have reacted to news that Ibrahima Konate will make his debut on Tuesday.
Liverpool pre-season friendlies
Kopites are anxious to see their heroes back in action.
Thankfully we don’t have to wait much longer to see the Reds.
Liverpool play two 30 minute mini-games behind closed doors on the 20th of July.
The Reds will take on FC Wacker Innsbruck at 5pm.
Then there will be a 15 minute break before Liverpool play VfB Stuttgart, who the Reds also faced last summer.
Liverpool face FSV Mainz 05 on Friday 23rd of July at 5pm. The game will be played at the 3,500 capacity Greisbergers Betten-Arena in Grödig.
On Thursday 29th of July, the 15,000 capacity Tivoli stadium will see Jürgen Klopp’s lads warm up against Hertha Berlin in a 7:20pm kick off.
Ibrahima Konate debut
Liverpool signed Ibrahima Konate for £36m this summer.
The Frenchman arrived from RB Leipzig after the Reds activated his release clause.
Jürgen Klopp was in desperate need of reinforcements after last season’s struggles with injuries at centre back.
We will see Ibrahima Konate make his Liverpool debut this week.
When asked about the Frenchman’s first game the boss responded:
“Tuesday. He’s had a good rest, had a normal pre-season so far, so yeah, he can play on Tuesday. For Ibou it is important that he gets minutes quickly, that’s what pre-season is for.”
