Former RB Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is confident that Naby Keita would be a great addition to 'an already incredible' Liverpool squad.

The Guinea international who agreed on a move to the English Premier League outfit last summer will officially join Jurgen Klopp's side on July 1 ahead of the new season.

And Hasenhuttl who left the Red Bull Arena at the end of the 2017-18 campaign has stated that Klopp will be thankful to have Keita in his ranks.

"The lad [Keita] is just that good. He's a professional through and through, he lives and breathes football," Hasenhuttl told Bild.

"Even if he wins the Champions League, Jurgen [Klopp] will be thankful for the reinforcement."

"He will join an already incredible squad. But if there's one player I don't have any fear that he can make it at every club in the world, then that's Naby."

Keita scored six goals and provided five assists for Leipzig who finished as the sixth best team in the German top-flight.
