Rb Leipzig forward Yussuf Poulsen has told Liverpool fans of Naby Keita’s brilliance ahead of his move to Anfield this summer.
In August 2017, the club did superb business by confirming the future transfer of the extremely talented Guinean for a fee that will be decided by where Rb Leipzig finish in the Bundesliga table.
Now, in just a few months’ time, Keita will be unveiled as a red, likely in Steven Gerrard’s famous no.8 shirt.
Poulsen has explained why supporters should be very, very excited:
“I think that most of the fans of Liverpool already watched him play. He is a superb player on a very high level,” the Leipzig striker told Omnisport, cited by Sky Sports.
“He shows what he can do with the ball even if it’s not going well for the team at this time.
“His last goal against Hoffenheim where he fakes out three people. He hit the post and then the ball went in.
“There are not many players in the world who can do that kind of thing.
“He is one of the few and not only the fans, but also his team-mates, should be looking forward to that.”
Keita picked up his fourth red-card of the season in his last fixture, meaning a suspension will ensue.
As a result, he’s played his last game for the Germans and the next time he pulls on a shirt at club level will be for Liverpool!
He’ll have to improve his discipline next term, as Klopp’s footballing style doesn’t work with one less player on the field, but we can’t wait to see how the manager moulds his ability.
In terms of attributes the manager likes, Keita has it all.
