‘Naby is already outside running, but the game tomorrow will be too early for sure,’ he said.
He will need to work his way back into the side after missing games due to his injury. Keita’s form also tailed off prior to the international break after an impressive start to life on Merseyside.
In an interview this week, he also revealed he was intensely studying English, although had been struggling to understand the Scouse accent.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, he said: ‘I am following a course, I am really motivated to speak English, it is really important for me.
Keita initially impressed after his Liverpool debut but his form tailed off temporarily
‘I want to be able to speak to the coach, I want to speak to the other players on the team and I am really working hard.
‘I am hoping in six months I will be able to do these interviews in English. I find the Scouse accent a bit difficult but I will try my best.
‘I do not know any Scouse, I have been trying to speak English I have not been able to learn any Scouse yet.’
Liverpool will be aiming for a victory against Red Star on Wednesday evening after a win and a draw in their opening two Group C games.
