Mohamed Salah left fuming for Ibrahima Konate’s failure in pre-season training.

Liverpool’s new boy Ibrahima Konate failed to stop Joel Matip from scoring in pre-season training – leaving Mohamed Salah boiling.

Konate, 22, lately joined up with his new Reds teammates after achieving a £36million move from RB Leipzig this summer.

The young centre-back is said to have struck in his first few sessions with Jurgen Klopp’s side, who were yelling out for defensive reinforcements after suffering an injury disaster last season.

James Milner has liked what he’s seen from him so far, stating: “[He’s] Very good. He certainly looks like a central defender! He’s obviously very strong, he’s good on the ball, a very good defender positionally.

“I’ve not seen much of him in training but a couple of things he has done have stood out.”

However, footage from Liverpool’s session in Austria on Friday reveals Matip getting the better of Konate during a small-sided game.

The centre-back goes on a surging run forward and beats one player before going towards his defensive rival inside the box.

He then pulls a shot across goal which Konate is powerless to block, meaning it gently seeps into the bottom-right corner.

Clearly on the opposite side, a visibly unhappy Salah turns away and pulls on his training bib in disappointment.

Nevertheless, it then gets worse for Konate as the clip continues.

Matip can then be noticed progressing with the ball again, but this time he presents a neat piece of footwork to get past the new soldier and then finds the back of the net once more.

Despite what seemed a difficult session, Konate is pleased to be a Liverpool player and has enjoyed meeting his new teammates.

“I am very happy to be here with the team,” he said this week.

“My first impressions, I am very happy because I work with great players and I know I will [improve] here and I will be better with time. I’m very happy because we work together, everybody is happy and this is good.”
