Liverpool’s Naby Keita could miss Wednesday’s UEFA Super Cup clash against Chelsea after he walked off training with some discomfort.
Keita left the pitch during the Reds’ evening training session, accompanied by one of the club’s fitness coaches.
Though he wasn’t limping, he appeared to be in some discomfort and looked to be concerned as he came off the pitch at the Vodafone Park in Istanbul, venue of Wednesday’s game.
The former RB Leipzig star was forced to pull out of this year’s Africa Cup of Nations after a recurrence of the thigh injury that had kept him out of Liverpool’s Champions League final triumph.
He had looked sharp since his return in pre-season and has seemed desperate to make an impact since his return.
He only rejoined Jurgen Klopp’s men for full training two and a half weeks ago in Evian, where the club trained on the shores of Lake Geneva during one of their summer camps.
He appeared in the 3-1 friendly victory over Lyon in Geneva, and the Community Shield final against Manchester City, before being named as an unused sub during the opening day win against Norwich City.
Liverpool will assess the midfielder on Wednesday, when they will hold one final training session ahead of the game, before making a decision.
