Express UK and several other legit sites reported likewise, a little search will show it.
The ones I've seen are quoting a Nigerian source.

This. Likely conjured up in a Naija press room or beer-parlor (little difference)...

Entirely different position. Keita is a CM, not a DM. Keita can play as a DM, but that would be detrimental to his overall gameplay, as it would stifle his forward runs. Keita is probably the only player out there equally apt at playing as an AM and as a DM.


Ndidi doesn't play as a DM.

I concur. They would not buy Ndidi to do exactly the same job as Keita (when they also have Capt Henderson and Gigi W in midfield too).

Keita will not sit in front of the D for Liverpool.

This calamity in our soccer has nothing with those folk. The regression and apathetic situation started a long ago before the demise of those individuals.. When was the last time Nigeria came close to produce world class player. 99.9 percent of our players have been mediocre even the ones that shone in junior tournaments ,. There is no question about it something is obviously amiss. Basically we are not getting the fundamentals right.

I know we are not, but even to that end we are still very very unlucky. At least we should be getting the odd bit of luck. It isn't like in the early 90s or late 80s we had the best academies in the world.

Countries like Togo, Gabon, Armenia etc. are hardly the go to places for nurturing talent, yet some notable players have sprung from those places.

As bad as we are, we should still have had better players in the past 15 or so years.

I think there is also a cultural factor, everytime a player doesn't break through we scream HYPE, haba. The world is filled with individuals who did not achieve their potential. It doesn't mean they were hyped up! Are you going to say Nikola Tesla was hyped? Heck even Albert Einstein might not have fulfilled his potential.

So NOT every player we have had that failed to break through certain thresholds was hyped. I think there may be a cultural factor. Obafemi Martins for example had a good career and many of you know I am one of his biggest fans, but he should arguably have had a better career. Could different fundamentals have helped? Sure. But I think the mentality is also an issue.

Nigeria is more and more a materialistic society, even more than we were in the 80s and 90s. Many of our players IMO have become swayed by fast money and don't have their heads screwed on right. Nigeria IMO is more a materialistic culture than the average society. I was surprised at some of the comments I heard when I visited Nigeria. So I think something is definitely up. am just speculating, but I think it is more than fundamentals.

I understand the point you'd make. My point is he doesn't only play as a holding midfielder for Leicester AND for the SE. Leicester will usually play 3 or 2 in central midfield and sometimes, Ndidi is the deepest lying midfielder and at other times he isnt, sometimes they have a midfield triangle and he's the most advanced in it, sometimes he is roaming while someone else sits in DM and the third guy is ahead of him, it has depended on the scenario of the game. Sometimes Iborra sits behind him, Albrighton has on occasion been behind him, even Fuchs has sat behind him. It's not as simple as saying Ndidi is a DM and that's it, it'd be like calling Vieira a DM. It pigeon holes what he brings to the midfield dynamic of his teams.

Not sure he fits.

Should be interesting what happens in the summer.

Keita comes in, and out would've been Cou and Can.

Klopp favors a rotating MF, rather than one with a specialized DM. The #6, who is typically the deepest of the trio, plays behind two #8s (or 8 and 10), but also gets forward.

In the end he may not buy a defensive MF at all, and rely on what he has.

In terms of that, Grujic at Cardiff is one to watch...

Does not have the all round skills to play the #6 role for Liverpool, unless the current thinking in the club changes.

Strong rumor about Jorginho (Napoli)

Fabinho
Keita
Ox
Wijnaldum
Milner
Henderson
Lallana

Possibly Fekir too....

Interesting times.

I'm disappointed they didn't go for Ndidi but he arguably doesn't have the complete skill set that Klopp would look for in a 6.
