Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita has admitted that the English Premier League is tougher than he expected.
The Guinean international joined Liverpool in the summer from RB Leipzig of Germany.
He has started all the four matches in the league so far but he has seen enough already to talk about the EPL
“I think it’s fair to say that the Premier League is a tough league,” Keita told club website .
“I’m very motivated to be playing in it – it’s an attractive proposition – but I’ve been told by many people that a lot of overseas players come into the Premier League and they take time to integrate, depending on the circumstances.
“So playing in the Premier League can be difficult, but I am very motivated to play here, not just for myself and my teammates, but for the club.
Keita has been phenomenal in his first few weeks in England drawing praises from pundits and legends.
