​Liverpool boss Klopp lauds Keita performance: Getting better and better

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was delighted with another excellent display from Naby Keita.

The midfielder has finally shown his worth to the Reds after a series of top class displays in the Premier League.

Keita was the star of the show in midfield in a 3-1 win over Brighton on Wednesday night, which included an assist for Mohamed Salah's opener.

After the game, Klopp told reporters about the player: "Absolutely great. He is getting better and better, step by step and game by game and that's really cool.

"Absolutely. I am really happy about that. Long may it continue, let me say it like this.

"When him and the boys stay fit then everything is fine with the quality they have, the way we play suits them.

"Tonight, being a player like Naby but winning these balls… come on, as a coach – and as the coach I am – I couldn't be happier about these kind of goals.

"Everybody is involved in that and I am really grateful for seeing things like this."
