Some Liverpool fans have been reacting to comments made by Reds hero Dietmar Hamann about midfielder Naby Keita.
Speaking to The Athletic last week, the former Germany international believes the club made a mistake giving him the No. 8 shirt and added that the weight of expectation mounted as a result of that, given to the pressure that was already on him having to wait 12 months to make the £48m move from RB Leipzig.
Should Liverpool sell Naby Keita?
Since his transfer, Keita has been unlucky with a number of injuries that has seen his game time significantly cut short, scoring just six goals and providing two assists in 51 appearances. During the current campaign, he has come under scrutiny despite putting in good performances.
With this in mind, supporters could not come to an agreement about Keita and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that given time, he will be a hit on Merseyside, while another concluded that “he’s finished” and should seek a move back to the Bundesliga.

Didi Hamann haven’t said anything good about the club. Naby keita will be a hit in the coming season.

Unfortunately I agree with @DietmarHamann. There have been glimpses of a brilliant player and no doubt would be a brilliant asset for a @SpursOfficial type side but not consistent enough for @LFC to be bringing in the big prizes regularly. I’d Give him until Christmas tho #YNWA
