Guinean international Naby Keita first season with Liverpool is done!

The 24-year-old midfielder has been ruled out with groin injury, the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

Naby picked the injury, which will see him out for two months, in the 19th minute of their Champions League semis loss to Barcelona on Wednesday night.

It means the former RB Leipzig man is set to miss the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt in June/July.

Klopp said: “Naby is really unlucky. It is bad news, unfortunately. It is an adductor injury and he has ruptured a tendon.

‘Bad news for us but bad news for him with the African Cup on Nations coming up. He was in a really good moment.

‘Of course it is a very interesting part of the season he is not part of but I also don’t think Guinea is a regular start for the African Cup of Nations.’
