Late arrival, bench stay: Keita’s challenges in Bundesliga return

Naby Keita, the former Liverpool midfielder, has encountered challenges in making a positive impact at Werder Bremen since his summer move, as reported by German outlet DeichStube.

The 28-year-old Guinea international, who battled injuries during his five-year tenure at Anfield, departed Liverpool as a free agent in June.

His return to the Bundesliga, where he previously impressed with RB Leipzig, has not unfolded as anticipated, with concerns arising from Bremen regarding his off-pitch conduct.

According to the report, Keita has struggled to earn the trust of the Bremen hierarchy due to issues related to his behaviour and punctuality.

Allegedly, he has been consistently tardy for team meetings and has chosen not to attend sponsorship events, raising eyebrows within the club.

Despite overcoming injury problems, Keita has found himself on the bench in recent matches under head coach Ola Werner.

The report sheds light on a less-than-ideal integration of Keita into the Bremen setup, where concerns beyond his on-field performance have surfaced.

As the midfielder gears up for participation in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations, his absence at the start of the New Year could further impact his bid to secure a more prominent role within the team.
