The Reds no. 8’s time on Merseyside has been plagued with setbacks and issues that have denied the former Bundesliga star a real run in the team despite joining in 2018, with records from Transfermarkt showing that Keita has already missed 27 games in total for Liverpool in two years due to injuries.

Yet despite a positive injury update from Jurgen Klopp that Keita could be available for this weekend’s Premier League clash against Bournemouth, some Reds fans on social media were simply fed up with the midfielder and his antics that have kept him out of the first-team for some time.
Here’s what a few Liverpool supporters had to say on Twitter about Keita’s fitness update…
