A lot of Liverpool fans have flocked to a tweet from Reds news Twitter account @AnfieldWatch, which shared James Pearce’s negative verdict on Naby Keita’s injury-prone nature.
The Athletic reporter participated in a discussion thread with fans of the Merseyside club for their latest Premier League game versus Southampton.
One of the topics that Pearce was asked about in that thread was the expected return date for Keita from his latest setback, with the £36m-rated man, who has been ‘plagued by injuries’ since moving to Anfield from RB Leipzig for £54m in the summer of 2018, currently sidelined due to a muscle injury.
In response to that question, Pearce declared that Jurgen Klopp seemingly wants the midfielder back for Friday’s FA Cup clash with Aston Villa before going on to cast some doubt over how long he will remain fit, because “he doesn’t seem able to string a run of games together without picking up another knock.”
So, how have these Liverpool fans reacted to Pearce’s comments on Keita?
After the journalist’s comments were shared on Twitter by @AnfieldWatch, plenty of Reds supporters began directing anger towards the Guinean, with some indicating that they think he should be sold.
“Sorry got no faith in Naby any more. Cant rely on him.
I‘d pull Salah and give Taki a run, sadly Mo just doesn’t seem interested at the moment.”
“Just sell that fella summer and get a decent midfield”
“The midfield Daniel Sturbridge”
“Sell Keita please. No point him being there if always injured”
“Waste of space”
“Can we just allow it. He & Matip gotta get replaced”
“Lost all hopes in this man tbh”
Should Keita be sold?
