Daniel Sturridge and Fabinho reply to Naby Keita’s pre-AFCON Instagram snap

This was quite the season for Naby Keita donning the Liverpool shirt. Less than a year after he joined the Reds he already had a Champions League title under his belt and accumulated 33 appearances for the team, scoring three goals and assisting one in all competitions.

But the season is far from over for this Guinea midfield maestro as he now lead his country in this year’s AFCON. The 24-year-old posted an image of himself and some teammates on Instagram before their flight and his Liverpool teammates were quick to react.

Daniel Sturridge was first to the scene and made sure to leave a remark on Keita’s stance, calling him a “player” and leaving some emojis to show support for his friend.

Fabinho did the same but in a less banter-like fashion, calling the Guinea star “class” before also posting fire emojis depicting how good the players look in the snap.

Keita is a major piece in the Guinea squad with 33 caps already under his name and five goals to boast with and will definitely be looking to take his nation as far as possible. Their opening match is on 22 June against Madagascar.
