Naby Keita could be an even more significant signing that Mo Salah.
That's why we should be unbelievably excited by his arrival.

I expect you all to use the diaeresis when writing Naby Keïta's name and I will be judging you when you don't

Theory: Liverpool are unveiling Keita now and not July 1st because they have something else lined up then. pic.twitter.com/PZQjbEyMEw

Ox was hands-down LFC's most progressive midfielder last season — transformed how they played.
Now, think about this: Naby Keita had more dribbles in one UCL game (11) than Ox had the entirety of his UCL campaign (10).
Ox is incredible. Naby is generational.
