Liverpool target Keita commits goes brutal on team-mate

RB Leipzig training was cancelled by furious boss Ralph Hasenhuttl after Liverpool target Naby Keita crocked teammate with a horror tackle.

Keita was involved in a training ground bust-up with RB Leipzig team-mate Diego Demme today as speculation mounts over his future.

German newspaper Bild claim Keita committed a “brutal” foul on Demme that left his team-mate requiring extensive treatment.

Video (Click here to watch video) shot from the training ground in Austria shows shocked players crowding round the player after the tackle. Demme is stricken on the ground receiving medical attention while Keita is seen talking to other Leipzig players.

He then walked over to talk to Demme before training was abandoned. Demme had to be helped from the pitch with a bandaged knee while Ralph Hasenhuttl ordered the team back to their hotel.

A Leipzig statement after the incident read: "Let off for Diego #Demme. He suffered a bruised knee from a tackle in training, but his meniscus & ligaments are fine. Get well soon, Diego!"

Bild have even speculated the challenge highlighted Keita's frustration at being unable to join Liverpool.
