Liverpool have confirmed that Naby Keita is back in full training, but not all fans are pleased with the news.
For many, his constant injuries have caused frustration and the news of his latest return doesn’t fill them with hope that he will be fit for long, whilst others simply believe he hasn’t played to a high enough standard since joining.
The Guinea international arrived last summer with big expectations due to his £48m transfer fee and the fact that the Reds were willing to wait a year until he joined.
However, he has started only 22 games since and would likely find himself as a back-up option even if fit, given the number of games Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson have played since the beginning of last season.

With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana also returning from injury he faces serious competition for a place in the side, and the League Cup clash against MK Dons, which could have provided him with a starting chance, may come too soon.
Here are some of the reactions from Liverpool fans, as many have just about had enough of waiting for him to come good…
Fed up of hearing how good he is…get rid, oh no we can’t cause he’s sodding injured again
