Naby Keita Praised After Champions League Heroics



Naby Keita

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita has drawn high praise from one of his Reds teammates after his heroics against Portuguese champions FC Porto in their Champions League quarterfinal tie.

Naby Keita was one of the Reds’ top performers against FC Porto in the first leg of their last eight tie.

After the game, Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk praised Naby Keita following his performance for the Merseysiders.

Van Dijk is delighted with Naby Keita and that the Guinean international player is finally showing his quality in the colours of Liverpool.

Naby Keita made it two goals in two games for Liverpool after he scored the opening goal for the Reds in the 2-0 win over FC Porto at home.

The Guinean midfielder gave Liverpool the lead in the fifth minute via a deflected strike before Roberto Firmino added a second goal for his team after 26 minutes.

Naby Keita is finally showing his worth for Liverpool after a slow start to his career at the club since his big money move from German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig at the start of the season.

He scored his first goal in the colours of Liverpool on Friday night to help the Reds recover from a goal down to beat Southampton 3-1 in the Premier League.
