Naby Keita is ready for Bayern clash and knows ‘how to play against them’

Liverpool are preparing to host Bayern Munich in the Champions League round of 16 on February 19.

The Reds’ midfielder Naby Keita, who used to play for RB Leipzig, believes his insider knowledge could help Liverpool’s chances against Bayern Munich.

“The dismissal left me extremely bitter,” Keita admitted to Bild.(per Goal)

“I thought the referee’s decision was very harsh. I had taken a lot of fouls without any of them being punished. And then for me there were two quick cards. For me, this match is a chance to do better.

“I’m not the only expert in this regard – in Xherdan Shaqiri we even have an ex-Bayern player.

“And of course our coach Jurgen Klopp knows all about them. But yes, I know about Bayern’s strengths and how to play against them,” added Keita.

“I moved to Liverpool to win trophies. In the championship we are well in the race, and we have a chance in the Champions League.

“We are working hard to present one or the other trophy to the fans at the end of the season.”
