RB Leipzig may have proved stubborn in their transfer dealings with Liverpool last summer over Naby Keita, but the German outfit ensured the midfielder parted ways with the club with their best wishes following his final game last week.
The 23-year-old will officially join the Reds on July 1 for a final fee of £52.75m after a deal was agreed last summer which saw the Guinea international remain with Leipzig for the entire 2017/18 season.
Following a campaign which returned nine goals and seven assists, helping the club secure a sixth place finish in the Bundesliga, Keita was handed a framed photo of himself and a bouquet of flowers – but it was the post on Twitter which was top class.
After two fantastic years, we say goodbye to our midfield maestro

The post, which included a highlight reel of his time at the club and a nod to the name Liverpool fans widely use to refer to their highly anticipated signing, read:
Don’t worry, we’ll look after him
