Naby Keita is well known to be friendly with his teammates only on the pitch but it doesn’t seem likely off the field of play except he’s with Mane.

Their closeness, however, started during their spell together at RB Leipzig in 2014.

This has made both players best friends and Mane has revealed that his Liverpool team mate is always telling him how amazing the club (Liverpool) is.

Haven agreed to a switch to Anfield from RB Leipzig this summer, the versatile midfielder has hit the ground running with a string of inspiring performances.

The clubs No.10 revealed how he constantly kept in contact with Keita even before he joined the Reds.
According to Mane:

“I think I spoke to Naby every single weekend because I knew him before we played together in Salzburg.”

Naby’s love for Liverpool already grew and even increased when the reds came for his signature. He has adapted to Klopp’s football probably because of his joy in putting on the red shirt.

“He is always telling me he can’t believe how amazing Liverpool is” said Mane.

The connection between this two is not strange on the pitch as they always look to find each other. The way they play and their movements with the ball only requires the numbers on their shirts as a measure of the discrepancy.

Both players are very good with the ball: while Mane is quite faster, Naby finds the location of any player easily.

Liverpool will face Leicester City at the King power stadium and both players are expected to play this weekend.
