Liverpool’s first signing of the summer is highly-regarded centre-back Ibrahima Konate, but how worrisome is his injury history?

Jurgen Klopp’s side secured the French defender on a long-term contract after agreeing to pay his £36m release clause to RB Leipzig. However, the player has a checkered injury history and, as everyone knows, Liverpool have already had to deal with their fair share of fitness problems over the past year.

In the above video, I analysed Konate’s injury history to determine just how worrisome that track record is.
