Keita on the other hand cost 50m and was touted as one of the best midfield prospects in Europe during his time at Lipzieg. Based on his price tag and previous form to expect Keita to put in a performance in a game like last night isn't unrealistic.
Totally agree. Nat performed admirably to his level last night. Keita didn't. Expecting him to come good is like putting lipzieg on a pig.
It's Kloppering time!
