Liverpool midfielder, Naby Keita has flown out of Guinea and is set to return to the UK amid a military coup back in his country.
This comes a day after Liverpool said they were in touch with authorities to ensure Keita’s safe return.
Guinea were supposed to host Morocco in a World Cup qualifier on Monday September 6, where Keita was expected to be involved, but a Coup d’Etat by
Guinea’s armed forces led to the postponement of the game and closure of the nation’s borders.
A statement from Liverpool on Monday read: “We are in constant contact with Naby (Keita) and have had regular communication via his national team management.
“We are satisfied that he is safe and well cared for. Obviously, the situation is fluid and we will maintain regular dialogue with the relevant authorities as we work to get Naby back to Liverpool in a timely and secure manner.”
Moroccan players were also able to get on a flight to their home country.
