Naby Keita impressed with Fabinho impact
Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita has revealed that he has been impressed with fellow team-mate Fabinho following his impact after sealing a spot in the squad.
Fabinho and Keita both arrived in the summer with the Guinean international breaking into the squad earlier that his compatriot who took a while to adjust but since then has gone strength to strength going on to make 25 appearances for the club so far.
Keita told Liverpoolfc.com he was surprised with the Brazilian form as he was impressed during his training sessions about his quality:
“I’m very happy for him. At the beginning he wasn’t playing much but he worked hard, he never gave up and he was always there for the team. The last match, he put in a great performance.
“That’s what we’re here for – to work hard and try to earn our place in the team. Midfield is an area where we have a lot of options, so that means no-one wants to get injured or give up their place. That’s an important thing for the team. When you’re in the team you know already how strong the bench is so you need to give absolutely everything in the game.
“I wasn’t surprised at all by Fabinho’s performance. In training the coach is there for everyone and training is always good. It’s down to us to keep focused and play well in every match.”
