Jurgen Klopp admits Naby Keita has plenty of improvements to make at Liverpool but he is not concerned by his slow start in England.
The Guinea international midfielder arrived in the summer, 12 months after the Reds paid £53million to buy him RB Leipzig, and the nature of his game was such he was tipped to make a huge impact.

However, after a promising start in his first couple of matches the 23-year-old has struggled for form, not helped having to learn a new language and culture, an injury which sidelined him for a month in October and being asked to perform a slightly different role from the one he had in the Bundesliga.
He showed flashes of his talent in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Leicester, only his 10th start in a total of 17 Premier League appearances, and Klopp is prepared to be patient with the third-most expensive player in the club’s history.
“Yeah, happy so far but still a lot to come,” said Klopp ahead of Monday’s trip to West Ham. “Naby is an outstanding player but he still has to improve; minutes, games, language, all that stuff.
“Everything will be fine, and it is fine so far, but we can really expect a lot more still, that’s how it is.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
