      Yeah I'm not sure what people expect of Ozan after a shaky first two games he's looked the part for us since.

      He has been very solid. Part of the team (partnering along Nat) who has kept 3 clean sheets. But he has "yet to see it" probably because he has no clue what he's looking at.

      At 18M the purchase option should definitely be triggered.

      Seen some good signs.

      Also seen things he needs to work on.
      That's because he's f**king 20.

      In one of the early Klopp interviews he said that Kabak is a big talent but he also can already deliver.
      That is exactly what Kabak has showcased.
      I assume Kabak will be at Liverpool for at least another 2 seasons.
      Konate, Fofana etc, don't have more experience than Kabak.
      Kabak is still young and needs to be trained, he'll make a huge step forward in his development once world-class people surround him during training (VVD). What can he learn from Phillips, Davies and Williams ? Defending against Salah, Mane will already teach him a lot, now he needs a pre-season and fully fit world-class Defenders besides him where he can look to learn a thing or two in the art of defending.
      He just turned 21, he has at least 12 years in his legs of professional football.
      He'll improve visibly every 6 months going forward. Upamecano didn't pass the eye-test in Champions League against Liverpool although media wrote about him as next Beckenbauer, Konate didn't even play in both legs returning from injury. This guy is injured as many times as his name is mentioned in the media, once Kabak reaches Konate's age he'll aready be much more experienced than Konate at his current age.

      Kabak also played Bundesliga, Champions League and already played 10 seniopr national team selection games, which Konate lacks.
      Leicester payed £32 million for Fofana, Kabak just costs £18 Million.

      He was good. Barring the first two games, he impressed. Is calm on the ball also. May be a little slow off the ball, which he compensates with the reading of the game.

      BILD: Mr. Konaté, rumours have been swirling around for weeks. Can you reassure the fans and promise that you will play for RB Leipzig next season?
      Ibrahima Konaté (21): "I have a contract until 2023. And contracts are there to fulfill them."

      BILD: Despite the €40 million exit clause in your contract? According to The Athletic, Liverpool are on the verge of activating the clause.
      Konaté: "Rumours are common in football, and many believe them immediately. Me or my advisers didn't get a call from Liverpool. In addition, I have big goals with RB Leipzig: these are currently the best possible performance in the Bundesliga, reaching the cup final and the U21-EM with France."

      He was alright.

      At the same time I'm not thinking "oh NO we can't afford to lose this guy!"

      Still some major questions about our roster for the coming season. The next 6-7 weeks will be interesting.

      Like I said a few posts above I didn’t see it in him and neither did Klopp at the end of the day. He’s still you and can go on and improve good luck to the lad.

      I thought the lad had real potential - read the game well, distribution was tidy, decent pace......needs to bulk up a bit but that'll come with age.

      Bit disappointed but we move on. Konate always been my main target.......

      Feel the same mate, even with the arrival of Konate I thought there was room for Kabak, given our injuries last season & the fact Matip is in & out the team..

      Would have been happy for us to sign Konate AND Kabak,
      with the way last season went.

      There in lies the difference between Liverpool and City.
      City would buy both and not have a repeat of what happened last season.


      Pity he never got to hear his song sang in a stadium.

      Who's Matip? Do you mean we have a player called Matip? I took a long while to gather me thoughts. Off topic.

      As it stands right now we go into next season with Virgil, Gomez, Matip, Rhys, Nat, Davies and Konate. That is 7 players whose primary position is CB. Count 'em.

      City played the 2020-2021 season with Dias, Stones, Ake, Laporte and Garcia.
