Kind of odd when you think about it. We passed on Fekir because of his injury record and I don't think he's been injured much since?
Moved heaven and earth to get Keita and hasn't been able to stay fit at all.
Fekir had a history of bad knee injuries, Keita didn't.
But yeah Fekir is a hell of a player and whoever built his Steve Austin we can rebuild him bionic knee, or knees, has done a pretty amazing job by the looks of it. He pulls off the sort of 180s that I haven't seen since the skateboard craze of the late 1970s.
I think we were right to pass on him though as we've got enough brilliant players with smashed up knees as it is. It's not worth the risk, although he would have rocked Anfield while he was fit.
