EPL: Klopp told to sell Naby Keita because of two Liverpool players
Former Liverpool star, Stan Collymore, has urged manager, Jurgen Klopp, to sell Naby Keita next year because of two Reds players, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliot.
Collymore said this after Keita produced an unimpressive display during Liverpool’s Premier League 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
With Fabinho, Thiago and Jordan Henderson all unavailable against Tottenham, Keita was paired in Liverpool’s midfield alongside James Milner and 19-year-old Morton.
But Collymore was not impressed with Keita’s performance against Spurs, insisting that Klopp should get rid of him at the end of the season.
According to him, Jones and Elliot can play in the Guinean midfielder’s position at Liverpool.
“For me now, I’m getting to the end of my tether with him [Naby Keita],” Collymore told Empire of the Kop.
“I wonder at the end of the season whether Jurgen Klopp would look to get rid [of Keita] and whether he would look to upgrade. There’s a possibility there.
“There might be other players like Harvey [Elliott] or Curtis Jones that may naturally develop into first-team players with another year behind them.”
