It’s set to be a summer of high transfer activity for the Reds but Paul Merson has been focussing on one man whose Anfield career he’s been less than impressed with, leading to a rather scathing report.
Writing for Sportskeeda, the former Arsenal player said: ‘As for Keita, I can count on one hand the number of good games he’s hand for Liverpool.
‘He’s a talented player but I don’t think he ever played 20 games in a row for the Reds, I have no idea why things just never happened for him at Anfield’.

It’s certainly not an instance of the 55-year-old mincing his words, as he delivered a crushing blow to the legacy of Naby Keita during his fives years on Merseyside playing for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Averaging 25 games a season since his arrival, our No.8 has been far from dependable and that will ultimately be his legacy for the the club – despite the fact he won every trophy on offer to him during his stay.
Leaving on a free transfer is probably securing the fact that the Guinean has been our one major transfer flop under our current manager but that doesn’t mean he’s without his talents.
