Brighton defender Bernardo: Good friend Keita is world class

Brighton defender Bernardo has no doubt about Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita being "world class".

Bernardo, Albion's Brazilian summer signing, saw plenty of that kind of talent when they were team-mates at Red Bull Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg.

He told The Argus: "Keita for me is world class. I don't know if there is a better player than him at his age.

"He is (19) 95, like me. I cannot think of one player in the world that is better than him.

"He is a fantastic player without the ball, with the ball. He helped us (Red Bull Leipzig) a lot.

"He was at least 20 per cent of our team. It was actually a good team that finished in second place in Germany."
