Naby Keita could make his Liverpool debut on July 7th against Chester in a pre-season friendly, after his announcement on July 1!
That’s just a few days away, but it’s felt like a lifetime since we actually confirmed the transfer of the Guinean all the way back last summer!
At that point, Mo Salah had never scored a goal for Liverpool and the thought of Jurgen Klopp’s side reaching a Champions League seemed farfetched.
Last night, Keita uploaded a snap of his younger self wearing a Liverpool top, along with a team of young Guineans doing the same!
Keita is in the middle of the top row – and he included the caption ‘Let’s get it started’ #YNWA’
Keita is going to be a potentially world-class midfielder for us.
He has technical traits like Andres Iniesta, the engine of Jordan Henderson and the defensive bite of N’golo Kante!
Statistically he’s jaw-dropping, and we just hope we can translate his Bundesliga form to the Premier League.
Judging by how Jurgen Klopp has improved his other Liverpool signings, we’re convinced he’s going to be brilliant.
