Naby Keita’s progress pleases Klopp
Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp noted midfielder Naby Keita’s progress.
Keita is conducting his debut English season quite unstable. Naby brightly began a new stage of his career after moving to Anfield from RB Leipzig last summer, but very soon he faced problems with his health and shape.
However, the 24-year-old Guinean is in a good shape again now. Keita was a part of the Reds’ starting line-up in all Premier League matches since a 2:1 defeat against Manchester City on January 3. Manager Klopp believes that Naby has made a big step.
Jurgen praised his player after the match against Bournemouth. However, the German specialist believes that the midfielder can play even better. Naby continues to adapt and it takes more time sometimes.
Liverpool have many options in the centre of midfield. There are Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson, but at the moment Keita is the head coach’s first choice.
