Naby Keita says it will take time for him to adapt to the demands of the Premier League following his £52.75m move to Liverpool.
The 23-year-old moved to Anfield at the beginning of the season and has featured in all four of Liverpool’s matches so far this campaign.
However, Keita was left on the bench for Liverpool’s trip to Leicester City in their most recent match, and he says it will take more time to acclimatise following his arrival from RB Leipzig.
Keita told Liverpool’s club magazine: “I’ve been told by many people that a lot of overseas players come into the Premier League and they take time to integrate, depending on the circumstances.
“So playing in the Premier League can be difficult, but I am very motivated to play here, not just for myself and my team-mates, but for the club.
“Everybody around me has been very supportive towards me so I am certainly giving everything I can to get settled into the team quickly.”
