RB Leipzig’s Sporting Director Slams Naby Keita’s Entourage Over Liverpool Rumours

RB Leipzig’s Sporting Director Slams Naby Keita’s Entourage Over Liverpool Rumours

RB Leipzig‘s sporting director Ralf Rangnick blames Naby Keita‘s representatives for turning the player’s attention toward a potential Liverpool move.

It’s understood that Jurgen Klopp is keen to sign the 22-year-old Guinea international, however, Leipzig maintain that they won’t sell Keita during this window.

And despite Keita injuring one of his teammates during an ugly training ground altercation this week, Rangnick claims the player isn’t the problem… its his agents.

Rangnick added that the midfielder has so many voices in his ear surrounding a potential move, that he may as well have “a whole village in Guinea” telling him what to do.

Speaking at a coaching convention in Bochum on Wednesday, as per the Guardian, Rangnick said, “There should be someone who points them into the right direction.”

He added, “The boys themselves are not the problem here. It is their surroundings.

“A whole village in Guinea or somebody from their entourage tells the players why they must do something right away. I can’t blame the players.”

So, is Keita the one trying to force a move to Anfield?

Or is Rangnick right?

Time will tell.
