Naby Keïta injures teammate during training

RB Leipzig

Naby Keïta was involved in a training ground dispute with teammate Diego Demme that subsequently saw training called off.

According to German news publication Kicker, Naby Keïta was fouled by teammate Diego Demme during training and the Guinean acted badly and injured the player.

The training session ended with Demme on the ground receiving treatment as a result of Keïta’s poor challenge.

It could be pure conjecture but it would seem as though Naby Keïta is getting more and more frustrated at the fact that Liverpool have been unsuccessful so far in their attempts to sign the midfielder.

Kicker indicate that it’s unclear whether or not Keïta’s challenge on Demme was the reason training ended or if the session was close to a conclusion but I think it’s safe to assume that Keïta is very frustrated with his predicament.

This news comes after Chris Bascombe reported last night that Liverpool will wait until next season to activate Keïta’s £48 million release clause.

Liverpool have so far been frustrated by RB Leipzig in their attempts to sign Keïta and the player may be downing tools in a bid to get his move to Merseyside this summer.

The Germans won’t want to hold onto a player that doesn’t want to stay at the club, let alone one who is injuring their players in training to get a move.
