Liverpool fans rave about Naby Keita after superb pre-season displays

first_imgWe’ve only had 11 minutes of this half and it’s the first time I’ve seen him play live, but Naby Keita looks different gravy for #LFC.— Ian Doyle (@IanDoyleSport) July 19, 2018 Liverpool have had one hell of a summer transfer window – but one man has stood out from the pack so far.Yes, it’s only pre-season, and we all know it’s unwise to build your hopes and expectations on what happens before the first Premier League whistle is even blown.But my word has Naby Keita been good! If Naby Keita revives Daniel Sturridge’s Liverpool career, he’s already a legend in my eyes.— Rex (@ThatRexGuy) July 19, 2018 If you had to build the ideal Jürgen Klopp midfielder, you’d build Naby Keita.— Jack Sear (@JackSear) July 19, 2018 Naby Keita is like our very own Kante 😍— Kopite Corner (@Kopite_Corner) July 19, 2018 Naby Keita only played the second-half against Blackburn but was Liverpool’s stand-out player in the 2-0 win Mo Salah on his way back to Melwood after seeing Alisson sign and Naby Keita thread balls through for fun #LFC pic.twitter.com/K5MKCBNAOu— fivetimesclub (@fivetimesclub) July 20, 2018 Naby Keïta’s like that bullish kid at school that just took the ball off you, whenever he feels like it.And if you refuse, his big brothers (VVD and Fabinho) will take it.— Ben Webb (@BenWebbLFC) July 20, 2018 Naby Keita 🔥— Anfield HQ (@AnfieldHQ) July 19, 2018 When Naby Keita is in full swing his qualities are a hybrid of Essien and Iniesta #LFC— kwaku ahenkorah (@KwakuAhenkorah3) July 19, 2018 1 I’M IN TOO DEEP INTO MY FEELS😫NABY KEITA IS RESSURECTING 13/14 STURRIDGE.I DON’T CARE WHAT LOGIC SAYS!! pic.twitter.com/w59XgXRhso— The Advocate (@TheAceOfKnaves7) July 19, 2018 In his four appearances so far the midfielder has shown why he was worth the wait after finally moving to Anfield this summer, having agreed his £52million switch from RB Leipzig a year ago.Being handed Steven Gerrard’s heralded No.8 shirt by the Reds legend himself, the Guinean has – according to supporters – shown shades of Andres Iniesta and N’Golo Kante and was again the star of the show in Thursday’s 2-0 win over Blackburn.Yes, Blackburn, we know – but Kieta was everywhere and he didn’t even break a sweat.And fans can’t wait to see him action when he is in top gear when the Premier League campaign kicks off at home against West Ham on August 12.The Reds faithful are also getting excited about his blossoming relationship with Daniel Sturidge, with many hoping Kieta’s arrival may resurrect the striker’s career at Anfield.See how Twitter reacted to the midfielder’s pre-season performance below: Naby Keita top class in that second half. Sturridge once again the pick of the strikers. #LFC— James Pearce (@JamesPearceEcho) July 19, 2018 Truly excited seeing Naby #Keita playing for #LFC. It’s only preseason, but you can see how he fits to a tee within our system and is such a quality player. Such balance and quick feet with a real eye for a through ball or a forward run.— Mario Aquilina (@mario_aquilina) July 20, 2018last_img read more
