Former Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita believes he has overcome his injury problems.
The Guinean midfielder saw his time at Liverpool blighted by one injury after another.
However, after signing for Werder Bremen as a free agent, the diminutive midfielder claims he is on the path to being a consistent performer next season.
“The injuries are behind me and I’m concentrating on my new team and not on what’s in the past,” he said in an interview with the official Werder Bremen website.
“I’m ready for the new task and I think we can have a good Bundesliga season together.”
“I understand that many people are wondering why I am making the move from Liverpool FC to Werder Bremen,” Keita told Werder TV.
“When I spoke to the coach and the sporting director, they told me about the club’s project.
“After that, I thought about it a lot, with my family too. In the end, I had to make a decision and I chose Werder Bremen. I am very happy with this decision and will give everything to the team in the coming season.
“Before, I was on the other side, now I’m part of Werder Bremen. I don’t like to talk about myself that much. I’m sure there will be some who don’t give Werder a lot of credit, but I’m looking forward to the task ahead.
“I’ve watched videos of Werder and think that if I can bring my quality to the team, we will be successful next season. I firmly believe in the capabilities of this team.”
