The Champions League has made icons of many Liverpool stars down the decade. One player enjoyed such an iconic moment for the Reds in the European Cup that his song is still sung today. Ahead of the trip to Porto, Liverpool legend Luis Garcia has heaped praise on Naby Keita.
He drinks sangria
In August 2004 Luis Garcia became the fourth member of Rafael Benitez’s Spanish Armada.
The diminutive winger arrived from Barcelona and he quickly became a favourite of the Anfield crowd.
He came from Barca to bring us joy, he drinks sangria and all the rest.
During his time at Anfield he won the FA Cup, the European Cup and he lost another European final.
He is most remembered for his ‘ghost goal’ against Chelsea, the only goal in the 2004/05 semi final between the Reds and the Blues.
Luis Garcia on Naby Keita
Still a keen Kopite, Luis Garcia regularly appears on LFCTV and as a pundit across a number of outlets supporting the Reds.
This week he has spoken to the Liverpool ECHO about the current crop Jürgen Klopp is in charge of.
Luis Garcia was full of praise for Naby Keita, telling the ECHO, “Keita is a player I enjoy watching play because of the way he sees football.”
What RTK has to say
Plenty of Liverpool fans will agree with Luis Garcia here.
Unfortunately, Naby Keita is one of the most frustrating players we’ve had at the club in years.
The Guinean’s quality is undeniable. Unfortunately, his injury record has made him incredibly unreliable, he was recently injured kicking the turf for crying out loud.
Fingers crossed this season is different, if only to make Luis happy.
