Asante Kotoko forward Naby Laye Keita has opened up on his relationship with countryman and namesake Naby Laye Keita who plies his trade in the English Premier League with Liverpool.
The Guinean center-forward Naby Laye Keita who joined the Porcupines in late 2018 as a free agent after finishing his contract with Guinean giants Horoya AC has revealed that, the Liverpool holding midfielder is a friend and not a name he inherited from the former Leipzig man as many people have said.
“I know him very well, he’s my friend. We started playing under 17 together but we don’t talk all the time but whenever we are in Guinea, we meet and do our own things,” Keita said in an interview with Kotoko Express.
“Before his move abroad, we were playing together in the national Division 2 league, he was with Santoba and I was with sefas and we were playing on the same pitch”
The lanky forward has been a key member of Maxwell Konadu’s team this season, helping the team to third place before the season was halted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
