According to the Standard, there is an injury update on Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita who has not featured for us since the Community Shield win over Manchester City. 

There was widespread confusion amongst Reds fans due to the fact that Keita has not been included in the official Liverpool squad list for UEFA Champions League Group Stage. 

However, in a strange turn of events, he was selected by Guinea’s boss Amir Daiwara for the upcoming International friendlies. 

Hence, the Reds faithful were left confused as to why Keita has not been selected for the UEFA Champions League group stage squad list.

However, the Guinea boss has come out and cleared all the fan’s conspiracy theories and has admitted that the player is indeed injured and is undergoing his rehabilitation process. 

Speaking about the influence of the Keita on the national team, Diawara said:

“He is recovering [but] his situation is improving, and he is even ahead of schedule.

“We are monitoring his situation very closely. We still have over two weeks before our first game. There are chances of getting [him] back.”

Keita has not been able to cement a place in the Liverpool starting eleven mostly due to a plethora of injuries suffered during his tenure.

With one year remaining on his contract, it is likely that this season is the make-or-break season for the player at Liverpool.

If the claims of the Guinea manager are true, it would actually make sense for Keita to get some minutes in and regain match fitness ahead of a tough run of fixtures for Liverpool.
