Jurgen Klopp branded "hasty and pretentious" for comments on Naby Keita

Liverpool's Naby Keita walks off injured during the UEFA Champions League semi final first leg match at the Nou Camp

Keita was forced out of Liverpool's 3-0 defeat to Barcelona in their Champions League semi-final first leg last week and subsequent scans confirmed that the midfielder had ruptured an adductor muscle.

"First we wish a very good and fast healing to Naby, as far as I know the adductors can not prevent him from playing the African Cup of Nations 2019 that will be played from 22 June for Guinea", Souare told Football Factory Radio, as transcribed by the Liverpool Echo. It will keep him out for at least two months.

Federation president Antonio Souare has told Football Factory Radio: "First we wish a very good and fast healing to Naby, as far as I know the adductors can not prevent him from playing the African Cup of Nations 2019 that will be played from 22 June for Guinea".

"There are two things: a very interesting part of the season he's not part of, on the other hand, Guinea I don't think is a regular [qualifier] for the Africa Cup of Nations".

He will miss Liverpool's final two English Premier League games, against Newcastle on Saturday and Wolverhampton Wanderers on the last day of the season, as well as the second leg of the Champions League semifinals against Barcelona on Tuesday. Not too nice. It's very serious.

Klopp claimed that an adductor problem was "very serious", with it highly unlikely that Keita could participate in AFCON.

"He was in a really good moment, but that's how football and life sometimes is".

Read Robert Mueller's letter to Attorney General Robert Barr
Mueller told the Attorney General his framing failed to capture the "context, nature, and scope" of his 22 month investigation. However, the latter hearing is in doubt because the attorney general does not agree to the proposed format for questioning .

Having suffered an injury in the first half against Barcelona on Wednesday, Liverpool provided an update on midfielder Naby Keita.

"We will use him of course, that's good".

Guinea will be in Group B at the Nations Cup in Egypt alongside Nigeria, Burundi and Madagascar.

As for Liverpool, they at least have Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back from a long-term injury, with Klopp adding: "It's flawless that Ox is back".

"Then we have to make a decision who starts".

"There's nothing good to say about Naby's injury but that Ox is back is brilliant, yes".
