Liverpool set to recall Naby Keita early from Guinea duty

Liverpool are likely to use their right to recall Naby Keita from Guinea's international duty later this month.

The 26-year-old will join his national team for their Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Mali and Namibia next week.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds have agreed to keep Keita out of the second match of those games, which is scheduled for March 28.

If coronavirus precautions prohibit players from returning on time, FIFA has stated that clubs do not have to release them for international duty at all in the coming weeks.

Players who fly to red zone countries are required to quarantine for ten days upon their return, according to UK government regulations.

Given that Namibia is included in that grouping, Liverpool is expected to request that the former RB Leipzig star returns to Merseyside ahead of time.

The Reds face Arsenal in their next Premier League match on April 4, before hosting Aston Villa four days later.
