Ibou Konate scored in three successive games for Liverpool in April. He has now discussed how Thiago Alcantara inspired him to get into the opposition's box more often.

“This was crazy,” Konate said in an interview with Liverpool's official website.

“It was good for the team, that’s more important. When I scored the first goal, after that I was confident. I hope this season I will score more than the last season.

“I spoke about this one time with Thiago in training and he told me, ‘When you go you have to believe. You are strong, you are big, you have to go.’ I said, ‘Yes, this is a good word for me.’ And I did it.”
