A dynamic all-round midfielder, Naby Keita won four major trophies during his first two seasons with Liverpool.

Having helped the Reds to Champions League glory in his debut campaign on Merseyside, the former RB Leipzig star ended 2019-20 with Premier League, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup winner’s medals.

The Guinea international wears the No.8 shirt for Liverpool and routinely showcases his vast and eye-catching skill-set from the centre of the park.

Injuries restricted Keita to 60 appearances across 2018-19 and 2019-20, but a timely return to fitness prior to the resumption of the latter season in June 2020 enabled a run of displays described as ‘unbelievable’ by Jürgen Klopp.

Keita featured in all nine of the Reds’ remaining fixtures following the campaign’s enforced pause and was an outstanding performer as Klopp’s team wrapped up the Premier League title.
