Liverpool news: "He will be a massive player" – Jurgen Klopp backs near Keita as a future Reds star


The Reds boss made his comments about the midfielder and stumbled upon becoming a star for the Anfield club in the future.

Jurgen Klopp supported Naby Keita and said that the midfielder would develop into a "massive player" for the Premier League club now he is backed up.

Keita, 23, joined Liverpool from RB Leipzig in July, but has only done six starts since he arrived, partly due to injury.

Guinea's international has not yet registered a goal or a help with the club because he suffered from back and hamstring problems this season.

Klopp seemed to say that Keita had made an average start to life in Anfield last week, but the Germans made their comments on Tuesday and said he referred to the player's adversity with a hamstring.

"He is an outstanding player," Klopp told a press conference for a crunch meeting with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. "I do not read English press, but this week I got a headline on something I said, which I did not mean so.

"Nearby was not average since he entered. The situation after he was injured was average because he had to get fit again, but the start was brilliant.

"He will be a massive player in the future for Liverpool and he's already.

"He is now really fit, he looks sharp in training, but as it is at a club like ours sometimes you have to wait a bit longer for the moment.

"And when you get the moment, you have to be ready. So it is.

"He is an outstanding player and we are happy to have him."
