Ralph Hasenhuttl, the RB Leipzig head coach, doesn’t seem to be happy with the recent shape of Naby Keita as the player has been underperforming recently and his boss isn’t happy about it.
Keita has already agreed to join Liverpool after this season as the Reds will pay the £48m release clause that he has in his contract with the German club. However, the Guinea international is about to spend the rest of the season with his current club and his coach hasn’t been happy with his performances recently.
The German coach spoke about Keita’s performances as he admitted that he expects a bit more from him, according to Sky Sports:
“Naby is not as consistent this year as last year. It’s important that he brings his expectations back to normal levels.”
He also insisted that he can understand some slips in form but he wants him to improve as soon as possible:
“I’m not one who wants to motivate with fear. I don’t immediately get the whip out in the classic sense and I don’t kick the players non-stop.”
