Keita reaffirms commitment to Leipzig cause

Naby Keita

Liverpool-bound midfielder Naby Keita has denied claims his level of performances will drop with Bundesliga side RB Leipzig this season.

Keita agreed to join the Reds at the end of the current campaign after they activated the £48 million release clause in his Bulls contract.

Reports in German media have questioned his temperament and professionalism to maintain the displays which saw the 22-year-old score eight goals and register as many assists in 31 Bundesliga outings last term.

But Keita told Sport Bild: “For the rest of my time at Leipzig, my commitment will remain as strong as it ever was.

“Since I’ve worn the Leipzig shirt I’ve always given my all – and that will remain the case until the final whistle on my final appearance for the club.

“My future has been sorted now and I can fully concentrate on helping us achieve our objectives this season.”
