BACK BY THEN 💪 : International manager now suggests ‘important’ Liverpool man could be fit again in two weeks

Guinea manager Kaba Diawara has suggested that Liverpool’s injured midfielder Naby Keita could be fit in two weeks.

 

His situation is improving, and he is even ahead of schedule. We took a group of 24 players precisely to give him a chance to be able to count on him because he is a very important player for us, on and off the pitch, he is our captain,” said the coach.

“We are monitoring his situation very closely. We still have a little over two weeks before our first game. Chances are we could get him back by then.”fit in two weeks

 

Keita’s situation remains unclear for now

Keita’s current situation is one of the most bizarre elements of Liverpool’s early season struggles.

His situation is improving, and he is even ahead of schedule. We took a group of 24 players precisely to give him a chance to be able to count on him because he is a very important player for us, on and off the pitch, he is our captain,” said the coach.

Having been expected to sign a new contract at the start of the summer, things appear to have turned a little sour.

 

With no sign of a new deal, Keita reportedly voiced his desire to leave the club towards the end of the transfer window.

Having been retained into the last year of his Reds contract though, Keita then rather predictably got injured. The issue has been described by The Athletic as a ‘serious’ hamstring injury.fit in two weeks

 

It looks severe enough to have ruled him out of Liverpool’s Champions League group stage squad. With the group stage running until early November, that would appear to mean Keita will be missing for a couple of months at least.

 

That would be an obvious contradiction to Diawara’s claims here.

 

It could of course be that Liverpool are dealing with an issue with the player behind closed doors.

 

If that is the case, then September’s internationals could throw a potentially ugly episode into the spotlight. Should Keita be fine to play for Guinea, it certainly wouldn’t be a good sign for his Liverpool future.
