Ibrahima Konate says winning the Champions League with Liverpool would be the best moment of his life.

joined

from Leipzig last summer and has featured seven times for the Reds in the Champions League.

Ahead of the Champions League final against

Real Madrid

at Stade De France, close to where he was born in Paris, Konate told the Liverpool Echo:

“I don’t have any children yet so I can’t be sure, but I think it will be the greatest moment.

“The Champions League final. In Paris. My home. If I tried I couldn’t have dreamt of anything better.”

Konate believes togetherness will be key against Real Madrid in the final.

He said:

“We have had so many big games before we start thinking about it properly. But it’s going to come round really, really fast now and we need to get ready for it.

“I hope that we’ll come home with the title. What a story – going to Paris, my hometown, and coming back to Liverpool with that trophy for an incredible celebration.

“I think that for this Champions League trophy, we’re talking about games I watched on TV as a kid and grew up watching. Even the final against Madrid when they lost (in 2018), I watched on the television.

“So it’s something that is already part of my history because I’ve seen it with my own eyes. It’s indescribable what it means. I’ve not got the words to explain what winning huge trophies as this one would mean.

“The club wants to show that they’re already part of football history, and they want to go on demonstrating that year after year. So when I think about the motto of being together You’ll Never Walk Alone, and having this history together, it is beyond words, beyond dreams.”
