Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita believes The Reds are completely focused on finishing the season strongly by winning every game they can between now and May.
Former RB Leipzig star and Guinean international, Keita, said he and his teammates are trying to enjoy their football as much as possible. They are doing this while remaining concentrated on the huge tasks ahead of them in both the Premier League and Champions League.
As reported in Keita’s interview with Liverpoolfc.com, Keita said:
“Of course we enjoy our football but when I say enjoy that doesn’t mean we’re not totally focused and concentrated on the task in hand. We don’t want to get too worried about the title race or the Champions League – the coach always tells us to focus on each game as it comes and concentrate on winning each game, then we’ll see what happens afterwards.
“We really want to win something this year – the players, the manager, the fans, all the team.
“We’re going to get to work, there’s not long to go. We’ve got another two or three months, we’re going to be totally focused on the training sessions and matches.”
While Keita, along with Roberto Firmino, faces a late fitness test on Wednesday to see if he can feature against Watford, Liverpool’s number 8 is more than ready if called upon. Keita knows there are no easy games in the Premier League but he insists the team are prepared to meet all challenges head-on.
“As far as I’m concerned there are no easy games in England, every match here is difficult.
“It’s down to us to be totally focused and concentrated, it’s all about having more desire than any of our opponents, which will help us win all our games. That’s the objective we’ve all got in our minds.
“Our coach is ready for that, and the players are also very determined to win every match to finish the season well.
“We’re looking forward to the next game and to boost confidence for the supporters and increase our own confidence again, so we can finish the season well. We’re going to do everything we possibly can to win it, to get back on the right track once again.”
