Keita to be given time to succeed at Liverpool by Klopp
He's had a rough time of it, with injuries at crucial times, when he's in form. Ruling himself out some big games when a return from injury coincided with another player's good form.
It's drawn claims from fans that he's injury-prone, over-rated, not good enough, with the English media jumping on the 'get rid' bandwagon.
According to InsideFutbol, the boss is prepared to give Keita all the time he needs to be the success at Anfield that we know he can be.
The talent and quality is already there. That is clear enough. His form at times has shown us a peak of the truly exceptional midfielder we have on our hands, if he can just stay fit.
And throughout the build up to the restart it's been said he's been incredible on the training ground, as well in the behind closed doors matches last week.
With just the 8 goals and assists across over 50 games, the pressure will be on Keita over the next 6 weeks but staying fit, and in form, would go a long way to changing the course of his career at the club.
