      Wonder if Jürgen has thought maybe just shut him down for the rest of this season unless he really needs him and let him get as fit as possible for off-season, hit the drawing board and give him one more shot to stay healthy and available next season? Probably not, but just a thought.

      I doubt it because he can barely get through 45 mins of football.

      He played something like 38 mins and collapsed in his last outing.

      His body isn't up for it. He needs to go MLS where he can run past people, play delightful outside of the boot through balls, and build up his youtube portfolio for a move to Inter

      Even at his very best he would need to play with 2 work horses to shine. If he's not got 2 of Hendo/Fab/Milner and at a push Gini then he's a liability.

      This! Plus he’s pretty slow for a midfielder. He’s a bust. I’d rather keep Ox than him. Thiago is more than able to do what Keita could do. We need to get rid of Keita and Shaq and Origi and Minamino. We need more workhorses like Jota.

      Shaq

      Minamino

      Origi

      What's the common connection here? All cheap basement buys. Minamino was a total flop. We were European Champions and should have been in for Haaland but instead ended up with the fat mate.

      Reminds me of that time Milan bough Shevchenko and Spurs bought Rebrov because he knew Shev ;D

      Though I rather cut my losses with him and move on I do think unless Naby wants out then Klopp will continue to try and make it work for him.

      Seems his agent thought he was fit to play today and yet he wasn't even on the bench again, supposedly injured.

      You'd think his agent would know if he was injured or not.

      Starting to look like we've got a real problem here.

      Wouldn't be surprised if Klopp told the squad who was playing and who was on the bench and Keita then declared himself injured.

      That might sound like bullshit but it wouldn't be the first time this season he's spat his dummy out.

      Klopp told Keita he wasn't on the Leipzig 'away' trip and instead he was leaving him behind to do 2 days fitness training and then Keita declared himself injured and unfit to train.

      Two years of a injury ravaged career at LFC.

      Doesn’t look like his body is robust enough for the EPL. If we can get at least half of what we paid I think it would be a good deal as I doubt we are going to suddenly see him regularly fit for the remaining 2 years, and end up letting him go for free.

      Naby is a talented player no doubt and still relatively young so hopefully a club is willing to take a gamble on him this Summer we need to replace him with a physically reliable player.

      Hasn’t contributed to any success since his arrival & if we sell him this summer he won’t be missed, which is a shame as the lad has huge potential..

      That sums it up. The only remaining riddle is why he did pretty well injury-wise in Bundesliga while he stumbled in PL, I mean both leagues are roughly the same im terms of body demand within a serious game. IMHO Klopp‘s training method has to be scrutinized.

      Offer Keita and £30 mil to Ajax for Gravenberch, with the young lad staying another season on loan.... lad is gonna be a star in very near future and Keita could shine for a team like Ajax.

      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.

      Wages and turnover are driven mainly by profile of the leagues and the tv revenue

      The Dutch league is a stepping stone league not a destination

      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.

      When he plays in the PL and doesn't get hurt, then we can talk about what could have been. I certainly do not follow Real Betis, but 5G and 5A is not all that impressive, either. In his last season with us before he "hurt" his back, Coutinho put up 13G and 7A, and that was in the early stages of our rebuild.

      Hes made the provisional 33 but along with 3 other full backs.

      One of them isn't making it because 4 right backs is excessive.

      Who'd have thought at the begining of the season that Naby Keita would make the England squad as a right back

      This guy has the potential to be one of the best midfielders in the prem because of what he can do when healthy and I love him but sadly if we can sell him then I would say do it. He has reached a point where he is useless to the club.

      At this point we're going to be selling at a loss no matter what. Unless Edwards thinks we can sell him at a better price next year then I would say sell this summer. Yes we wont be getting a great price but we also will be lightening the wage bill of his weekly 120k (according to Spotrac). I would much rather we use that money towards extending some of our key guys or simply towards a new midfielder.
