Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate admits he surprised himself with how he handled Cristiano Ronaldo.

One of the four Premier League starts he has made came in the Reds' emphatic away victory at Manchester United.

Taking on the challenge of facing Ronaldo was handled with ease by Konate, who frustrated the 36-year-old throughout proceedings.

"I was surprised because he is one of the best players in the world. But he is just a human like me, who has two arms and two legs," replied the Liverpool central defender when describing how he found facing Ronaldo.

"I just had to be focused and do my game with the team. It was good, it was ok."
