Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate says it's wrong to compare him with Virgil van Dijk.

Konate arrived last summer from RB Leipzig and has shone during his limited chances so far this term.

"No, no, I cannot compare myself with Virgil," says the 22-year-old to Sky Sports.

"He showed the world that he is the best defender, I have not done that.

"I hope I can show it in time."
