INSIDER: Liverpool midfielder Keita 'thinks he's okay'

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita showed few effects of an injury suffered with Guinea today.

The midfielder was forced off in the first half of Guinea's 1-1 draw with Rwanda on Tuesday afternoon, in what was the latest international break injury blow for the Reds.

But despite fears over Keita when he was seem being helped off the pitch by a teammate, the player himself seemed positive that he the blow wasn't too severe.

Local journalist Sega Diallo - who helped break the news of Keita's signing for Liverpool when he joined on a pre-contract agreement in summer 2017 - tweeted an image of Keita in a car that he claimed was taking him to the airport, perhaps to fly back to Merseyside.

He wrote: "Already on the way to the airport, @NabyDeco does not know if it is serious.

"He will do an examination as soon as he arrives @LFC . He thinks it's okay."
