Since his arrival in the summer of 2018 from Leipzig, Naby Keita (26) has never really won in Liverpool. Very often on the sidelines, the Guinean midfielder has trouble meeting the expectations of his coach Jürgen Klopp. This season, he has, once again, played very little despite the many injuries in the midfield. But for the German technician, there was no question of letting his player go.
The former Borussia Dortmund coach is counting on him despite his poor playing time (he has only started nine times this season). “He’s training really well, like a lot of other players, and he looks really good in training. But this year, we need stability. We’ll make changes every now and then, that’s for sure, but it’s not like we pick seven, eight, or nine players to change them and say, “Maybe we can win like that.” The long term future of Naby Keita, from my point of view, is here, yes ” he explained.
