Liverpool helps Klopp’s ‘Superman’ like Colwill transfer to win big

Since the beginning of April, Ibrahima Konaté has really made money in the red shirt, when it was expected that he would do too much on the pitch. Jürgen Klopp then decided to change his approach system, as the German coach was searching for answers as his players struggled to deliver consistent results and performances. .

He instructed his players to adopt a new 3-2-5 formation whenever in possession, with right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold moving back into the midfield to play alongside Fabinho. At the back, Konaté used the right flank of Liverpool’s makeshift defender trio, with Virgil van Dijk in the middle and Andy Robertson on the left.

The 3-2-5 formation spurred a real flourish on Merseyside, with Klopp’s men winning seven out of 10 possible matches while also capturing three draws. Liverpool already look significantly better with the new attacking structure, but Konaté in particular is expected to cover more ground than all of his teammates.

The French defender was almost a victim of the new arrangement, although his incredible qualities have allowed him to cope. With Alexander-Arnold drifting to the right and into the middle, Konaté is expected to manage the wide spaces at the back, as he has to carry out the two-player’s executive job efficiently.

Robertson’s attacks on the left flank of the Liverpool defence did not help the situation. The Scots are attack-minded by nature and as a result he has a tendency to move forward whenever he can. In the past that wasn’t an issue, but now Robertson has to play as part of a three-man defence.

«We can’t have one full-back in the middle of the pitch and the other constantly rising up the left wing,» Klopp said at the end of last season (via ECHO). «It’s hard, so Robbo has to assess the situations when he can get in and when he can overlap.»
