Ibrahima Konate about the two finals lost: I had trouble sleeping the days after

In an interview with Eurosport France, Liverpool and France defender Ibrahima Konate talked about the difficulty of sleeping after the defeat in the final against Real Madrid, as well as the defeat in the World Cup final against Argentina.

Nevertheless, Konate is an optimist and does not want this to prevent him from achieving success in the future. "Honestly, after those two matches, I had trouble sleeping the days after,” Konate said talking to Eurosport France.

“It hurts when I think about it.
But I tell myself today that I will do everything I can to win them one day.
When I have won them, the story will be very nice to tell at the end, whether it's to you, the journalists, or to my future children.
I will tell them that, ‘yes, I lost two important matches but I managed to win them afterward’.

The story will be even better”.

Ibrahima Konate talks about World Cup final

Konate took the defeat in the Champions League final much more easily, but the World Cup final is something that still left an impact on him.

“The Champions League is fine, you can digest it. But the World Cup, that's not acceptable. In real life, it doesn't work.
When I see it [Kolo Muani’s chance] again on TV, my heart palpitates as if I were in the middle of a match and he still had the chance to score.
It's hard, it's hard."
The great defender believes that he could not have done anything more in the final against Real Madrid.

He gave his best and tried to help the team in the best way. “I'm lucky in that I have no regrets. When I replay the scenario of the match against Real Madrid, I say to myself, ‘What could I have done more?’ Well, nothing at all.
The World Cup final, I have a few precious minutes and I also say to myself: ‘What more could I have done?’ And I don't see. I have no regrets. I have regrets for the team but no personal regrets”.
