Liverpool: Sky Sports man backs FSG to do U-turn on Naby Keita

Liverpool: Sky Sports man backs FSG to do U-turn on Naby Keita -Liverpool News

Liverpool will now offer midfielder Naby Keita a new contract at the end of the season, according to Sky Sports pundit Paul Robinson.

The Lowdown: Change of heart

The 27-year-old first joined the Reds from RB Leipzig in 2018, and has since gone on to make 110 appearances at Anfield, lifting both the Premier League and Champions League.

The Guinean currently has just over 12 months remaining on his existing contract with the Anfield outfit, and despite it being reported back in February that his future on Merseyside was up in the air, the former goalkeeper believes that the club have done a U-turn and will definitely want to retain his services next season and beyond.

The Latest: Possible new deal

When asked what he thinks the future holds for Keita at Liverpool, Robinson told Football Insider: “I think a new contract will be on the table come the summer and he has earned it.

“The manager trusts him, you can see that now. He is playing him in big games. It is not as if he is playing a bit-part anymore.

“The squad is being rotated but Keita is playing in big games. His performances warrant a new deal and I think he’ll get it in the summer.”

The Verdict: Deserves an opportunity

The 48-time international has enjoyed a great season with the Reds, scoring five goals and providing two assists across all competitions.

The maestro is also currently averaging 1.3 shots per 90 minutes and has a pass success rate of 85.4%, via WhoScored, showing his ability to control a game from the middle of the park.

Once dubbed as being a “world-class” player by his Liverpool teammate Virgil Van Dijk, Jurgen Klopp will no doubt want to do everything in his power to keep Keita at the club where he has the chance to go on and enjoy plenty of long-term success in years to come.
