Karim Adeyemi says 24-year-old Liverpool target is the best player he’s ever played against
Karim Adeyemi has given an interesting answer when asked to name the best player he’s ever played against.
The Borussia Dortmund attacker has played against some of the best players in the world in the Champions League and the Bundesliga in recent years.
Adeyemi has seen them all from Kylian Mbappe in the Champions League this year to Harry Kane in Der Klassiker in the Bundesliga.
However, according to Adeyemi, the best player he’s ever come up against is none other than Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo.
Speaking to 11TeamSports on Tiktok, the German stated that Araujo is indeed the best player he’s ever come up against.
Interestingly, this comes not long after reports that Liverpool were looking to sign the 24-year-old defender.
Karim Adeyemi names Ronald Araujo as his best opponent
The attacker spoke about the Barcelona star.
“Who is the best player you’ve played against?” Adeyemi was asked.
“Araujo,” The striker replied
It doesn’t take a genius to see why Adeyemi has given this answer.
Araujo is a top class defender, and for a player like Adeyemi, he’s an absolute nightmare.
Adeyemi, with all due respect, relies a lot on his speed to beat his man, but Araujo is one of few defenders in world football who can match him in a race.
The Uruguayan is absolutely rapid in his own right, and when you combine that with an incredible footballing mind and immense strength, you have a seriously good player.
There’s a reason Liverpool are keen to add Araujo to their ranks, he’s a quality centre-back who would complement their style brilliantly.
Of course, whether or not that move comes to fruition or not remains to be seen. After all, we don’t even know who will be managing Liverpool next season, but if Araujo does come in, he would be a fantastic addition to this Liverpool side.
