share on:

Naby Keita rejected interest from Barcelona and Bayern Munich to join Liverpool and work with Jurgen Klopp.

In an interview with the Guardian, the midfielder said: “It’s true to say that there were other teams involved like the ones you mentioned [Barcelona and Bayern]. But a big part of my decision was the role of the coach.

“We had good conversations. The words he spoke to me about this project really convinced me. I could see how the club was developing and I spoke at length with Sadio [Mane].

“Sadio is like a brother to me. We had nine months together at Salzburg and built up a good rapport. We have been great friends since that time. He told me what a great club this was and how the team was progressing and had great potential.”
