Naby Keita hasn't matched level of 'best time' at RB Leipzig since Liverpool move, says Jurgen Klopp
Naby Keita maxbet has not reached the same levels he performed at with RB Leipzig since joining Liverpool says Jurgen Klopp, but he remains undeterred by the midfielder’s potential. The Guinea international's most recent of his eight Premier League starts came against Wolves on December 21 and Klopp admits the 23-year-old is still searching for full confidence.
Keita, one of four summer additions to Klopp's squad, has found game time hard to come by over the festive period, having missed three games earlier in the season through injury.Asked if there had been any reason for Keita's recent lack of involvement, Klopp said: "No. That is sometimes how it is. I spoke to him. [With] Naby everything is fine. I am completely happy with him.
"Could he be a bit more confident in the games? Yes. maxbet "Is he exactly the player in his best time at Leipzig? No, but he is still adapting - that is how it is."Liverpool triggered Keita's £48m release clause - a then club-record fee - in August 2017, for him to join the following summer, and Klopp selected him to start in the league leaders' opening three matches.
"Everybody saw, not only at the beginning of the season, how brilliantly he played in the first part. Tottenham [away] was a fantastic game from him without thinking too much," Klopp added."Then we made a change around pre-[Manchester] City game. The boys have to deal with it and then a little injury here, little injury there. "It was kind of a little setback but he is a fantastic player and I am really happy to have him here. maxbet I am really looking forward to our common future."You see every day, wow, there is so much to come and so much influence he can have on each game. That's all good.
