Coronavirus: Liverpool’s Naby Keita calls for seriousness, serenity and courage


The Guinea midfielder has sent out an encouraging message in these troubling times

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita has called for “seriousness, serenity and courage” as the world continues to deal with the coronavirus.

The pandemic has had a large scale impact on socio-economic activities globally, with football not left out.

The Premier League has had its suspension extended to April 30 to give the nation more time to solve the pandemic.

This means the quest for Liverpool to be officially crowned league champions for the first time in 30 years will have to wait longer.



La propagation du Coronavirus nous rappelle tous, les fragilités du monde actuel. Dans ces circonstances, nous devons resserrer les liens et faire de la solidarité active la trame de notre action quotidienne, particulièrement à l’endroit de ceux qui, comme vous, loin de leurs familles, peuvent vivre un sentiment de solitude, voire d’impuissance. Nous sommes tous appelés à faire face à cette urgence sanitaire internationale avec sérieux, sérénité et courage. Que l’âme des disparus repose en paix, que Dieu protège les malades atteint du virus et nous epargne de ce calvair ???
