Watch: Naby Keita Scores 25-Yard Rocket To Break Deadlock In Hamburg

You could forgive any Liverpool fan for keeping a close eye on the matches of RB Leipzig this season after they agreed a deal to sign the player at the end of the current season, and those who tuned in to the Bundesliga action on Friday night will have been glad they did.

Jurgen Klopp said recently that he has never gotten so many messages of congratulations from his friends in the Bundesliga after the deal was confirmed, and against Hamburg we got a glimpse as to why.

With the score at 0-0 as the game entered the latter stages, Keita made himself available for a quick free-kick before beating his man and unleashing a rocket into the goal to put his team ahead.

What a strike, that is not a technique that many players can pull off. Tim Wener added a second soon after and the score finished 2-0 to the visiting side.

Keita has started the season in exceptional form for club and country, having scored during the week for Guinea as well.

The Liverpool fans that do keep up with RB Leipzig this season will also be hoping that they wrap him in cotton wool and crossing their fingers that he avoids injury, as he does look like a fantastic addition to the squad that will make the team stronger next season.
