In an interview with Football Insider , Whelan said he had been expecting much more from the Guinea international who had set the world alight in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig.

“We all expected a lot more from Keita.

“He’s been hit-and-miss. We’ve seen some spectacular performances, but also some average performances."

Whelan went on to say that it's consistency in Keita's game that is the key to him being a success at Liverpool and truly earning the respect of his manager Jurgen Klopp.

“He needs to work on his consistency and being a lot more involved in that midfield area. He’s got to command that area like Thiago does and like Wijnaldum did.

“Klopp obviously believes there is a player there and that he is capable of improving, or he wouldn’t be offering him a new contract.

“His aim in the next season has got to be to find that consistency in his game.”
