RB Leipzig Post Classy Sendoff for Naby Keita on Twitter Ahead of Liverpool Switch

​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. 

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: “After two fantastic years, we say goodbye to our midfield maestro . Sit back and enjoy the very best of B̶a̶b̶y̶ ̶K̶e̶i̶t̶h̶ Naby #Keïta ”

A classy tribute to the midfielder who spent two-years with the club following his move from Salzburg in 2015, and the sentiment was returned by the 23-year-old on his ​Instagram account.

He said: “I just want to take a minute to say thanks for everything. Thanks for the 2 years I’ve been here in Leipzig. I appreciated the whole team @dierotenbullen and a big thank to the FAN RB Leipzig, your guys are AMAZING!!! NK8 ⚽️✌️”

The post from Leipzig, whilst being littered with responses from their own supporters, was also inundated by excited Liverpool fans who cannot wait to see Keita at Anfield in a red shirt…
