Naby Keita describes dressing room boost Liverpool handed ahead of City clash
Nov. 07, 2019
Naby Keita has revealed the "big boost" Liverpool have received this season.
The Reds are currently unbeaten in the Premier League as they prepare to welcome Manchester City to Anfield on Sunday.
And the midfielder believes Liverpool have been handed a boost after the Ballon d'Or shortlist was released last month.
Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Gini Wijnaldum, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane were all named on the 30-man list.
"The whole dressing room has congratulated them," Keita told Liverpoolfc.com.
"It's an honour for them to be nominated, and it serves to mark your achievements up to that point, but it also serves as a motivation to continue improving and working as well.
"Of course, I am not only happy for Sadio [Mane], but the other Liverpool players too. They are all my teammates and I am really happy for them.
"They had an extraordinary season, and hopefully are all set to have another one this season and the one after that too.
"It gives a big boost of pride to each player. In yourself, pride for your family, for your friends.
"But with that boost, it's up to you to keep on keeping on, right until the end and I am sure they will do exactly that."
