Naby Keita was brought with much fanfare and prolonged excitement thanks to his transfer being arranged in advance. However, fans didn’t get to see his best for most of this season.
His performances were a bit held back for most of the 23 appearances he made in the league, with people declaring he was not up to the standard required to play for Liverpool in the Premier League.
In the past few weeks however he has been able to shut-up people with his performances in midfield.
Against Cardiff, he put in a match-winning performance. Keita contributed both in defence as well as in attack. The kind of industrious performance Liverpool bought him for.
At long last, it seems the £48 million Liverpool paid will be worth it.
