Ibrahima was speechless? 

Ibrahima moved to Liverpool FC back in 2021, and since then, he has been playing for the team as a defensive player. 

In one of the interviews, he talked about his Liverpool move. 

When Ibrahima heard of Liverpool buying him, he couldn’t believe the news until the club itself informed him. 

He was completely speechless but was very happy and excited at the same time. The only word that came from his mouth after getting that big news was ‘Ohh.’ 

It was unexpected for him, but he couldn’t speak more as he had an important match to play with Leipzig

He also called his parents to share the news, but shockingly, his parents already knew about him going to Liverpool, and they were extremely happy for him. 

Ibrahima has no difficulties facing tough players? 

Ibrahima started playing in the Premier League after he joined Liverpool, and throughout these years, he has played many matches. 

As a defender, Ibrahima was asked about the toughest player that he faced to defend against in the Premier League in one of the interviews. 

However, Ibrahima didn’t name any of the players. 

He said that he has no names in his mind and that he had no difficulties defending till now and also hopes not to have any problems in the upcoming days. 

He had even played and defended against Cristian Ronaldo, but he didn’t say that he had a hard time playing defense against him. 

He just said that he was focused more and did his best. 

Hamadi’s wife gave their son a unique nickname 

Ibrahima is known by the name Ibou

Everyone wanted to know why he was called Ibou, so in an interview, he opened up that Ibou is the name given to him by his mother. 

She has been calling him Ibou since he was young and his other family members also call him with the same name. 

But when he joined RB Leipzig, his mom came with him on his first day, and his mom just called him Ibou every time. 

The coach of Leipzig curiously asked him why his mom was calling him Ibou, and that’s when Ibrahima told him that his nickname is Ibou and everyone in his family calls him by that name. 

The coach also decided to go with calling him Ibou, and that’s how everyone started calling him Ibou.

Ibrahima can easily adapt? 

Ibrahima moved to German club RB Leipzig back in 2017. Prior to moving to that club, he played for Sochaux

He came to Leipzig on a free transfer, and as Leipzig was in a completely different country, Ibrahima had to face lots of difficulties to get settled there. 

However, Ibrahima was mentally strong, so he overcame all the challenges that came his way. 

He is from France so speaking German language was one of the biggest obstacles that he faced. 

He was nervous at the beginning but very determined to do anything, and in less time, he adapted to the new lifestyle in a new country.
