Naby Keita, who’s signing for Liverpool in the summer, assisted Ademola Lookman, who’s on loan from Everton, for Rb Leipzig, last night!
Our Merseyside rivals got trounced 5-1 at the Emirates yesterday, and salt was rubbed in the wound when Lookman, who Sam Allardyce decided wasn’t ready for the first-team, scored a beauty in the Bundesliga alongside the brilliant Keita.
Liverpool wanted to bring in the Guinean early over January, but Rb refused – demanding an overly extortionate fee for what would essentially be a six month loan deal.
Jurgen Klopp decided against it and we’ll have to wait for Keita until the summer. He’s a terrific footballer and is going to be a tremendous boost. The 22-year-old, without exaggeration, could become one of the world’s best midfielders.
