Guinea’s midfielder Naby Keita will miss the final African Cup of Nations group clash against Burundi with an injury.
Keita missed the closing stages of Liverpool’s season due to an adductor injury during his side’s 3-0 loss to Barcelona in the Champions League. The Reds were reluctant to let their star man feature in the AFCON but Guinea passed him fit and played the two opening matches against Madagascar and Nigeria.
As reported by Foot224, the midfielder has been ruled out of the final match of Group F with a shin and thigh problem after his appearance against Nigeria.
Liverpool staff had adviced the team to let the midfielder rest but ended up training every day since he linked with the teammates. However, Keita did not take part in training on Friday.
