A segment of the Kop faithful have responded to comments from James Pearce of The Athletic who suggested that Liverpool will keep hold of Naby Keita in the summer.

Pearce spoke on The Red Agenda Podcast (March 18th, 43:54) and said that he would be very surprised if the Reds cut their losses on a man we spent £48m on bringing to Merseyside.

Due to various injuries that he’s suffered during his time at Anfield, he has only played 51 games for Jurgen Klopp’s side, scoring six goals and providing two assists.

Keita has missed a total of 27 matches due to his absences, which has varied from bruises to groin strains and torn muscles.

We still haven’t seen the form that the Guinea international produced at his former side RB Leipzig. He scored eight goals and eight assists during the 2016/17 campaign which led to the Reds agreeing to a deal one year in advance.

Will Naby Keita leave Liverpool in the summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Because of this, supporters have had enough of Keita and want to see him leave. One fan pleaded to the club to “get him out” because he won’t play more than 10 games a season, while another said that he is “made of glass”.
