Naby Keita has insisted that he feels confident that he will be able to quickly adapt to the rigours of Premier League football following his transfer to Liverpool FC this summer.

The Guinea international is adapting to life at Liverpool FC after having completed his move from RB Leipzig earlier this summer.

The midfielder will be hoping to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Liverpool FC next season as he bids to help Jurgen Klopp’s side challenge for major trophies.

Liverpool FC are still aiming to win their first trophy since Klopp’s appointment at Anfield back in 2015.

And Keita seems to think that he will not have any problems in adapting to life at the Merseyside club following his transfer at the start of the window.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Sky Sports, Keita said: “I don’t think that physical aspect is going to have a negative effect on me at all.

“I’ve watched a lot of English football and I’m getting used to this kind of physical aspect. Through the process of the pre-season friendlies, hopefully I’ll be up to speed with it. Winning the ball back is something I like.”

Liverpool FC ended up in fourth place in the Premier League table last season and without a trophy last term.

They reached the Champions League final in impressive fashion but ended up losing 3-1 to Real Madrid back in May.

The Reds completed their latest signing of the summer last week when they wrapped up a deal to bring Alisson Becker to the club.
